    I was away for two weeks and stored my white MacBook in my closet. THen I plugged it in to the plug thingy to recharge it. The green light lit up on the plug. But when I look at the right hand side of the screen at the bottom it says "Not Charging." Does anybody know what this means?

    Try leaving it plugged in for a day or so, or resetting the PRAM.
    Do do that, hold the Command+Option+P+R buttons at startup until you hear the mac chime at least twice.

    PRAM has nothing to do with batteries or charging: Mac OS X: What's stored in PRAM

    If you have problems with charging, this might help:

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions: Apple Notebook Battery FAQ
