    Here is some info
    - I can use the computer with the mag charger in but the battery icon will stay at 0% and read ( Not Charging )
    - The mag cable is glowing bright green
    - When I turn the computer upside down and press the little indicator to see how much battery is on nothing happens
    - It's a early 2007 Macbook pro 10.5.8

    I have exams tomorrow and really need to use it
    Please help me!

    Your battery is dead so work with the computer plugged in. Go to an Apple store to get a new battery when you have the time. Save your work frequently.

    If someone trips and unplugs the adapter, my computer dies

    Either the battery is toast or there is a connection problem and it's not getting charged. It's likely a dead battery.


    Better sit away from people and near a reliable power source. Also, I'd save frequently, both to your harddrive and a flash drive, just in case you have a problem/issue.

    did you really need to start another thread? But yes, as said above back up your data and take it to apple for repair/ new battery at your next oportunity.
