    Hi guys, this might be a dumb question... But if my Mag Safe charger is plugged in and not charging any notebook, is it still drawing power from the outlet???

    If the notebook is on, yes, as that's what powers the notebook when it's plugged in.

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    Yes, a Magsafe by itself still draws a small amount of power. Not very much, but a measurable amount.
