    so I was having the 'flashing green' problem with my charger, but I got that problem taken care of when Apple sent me a replacement charger.

    ..but I have another question. My computer was down to about 2 hours left when I got home and plugged it in (I always plug it in when it's on my desk) and then, after waking up from sleep, it shows 26 min remaining.

    why doesn't it say "charging" if the charger is plugged in and it's glowing amber?

    sorry for the (probably) stupid question, but little things seem to worry me.

    I just realized that the time might be counting down to a full charge -- no?

    if so, I feel like a motard. ..but I did look in my manual and it doesn't mention anything about it.

    When its charging the time displayed is the time remaining until full. Took me a minute to figure that one out too, its rather counterintuitive.
