Loose Macbook screws? (and a few other questions)

    On my macbook, on the left hand side, where the second screw from the front is, I'm able to push the plastic in. It's almost as if the screw is loose. Anyone else with similar experiences?

    Secondly, the left hand side at the top (near the magsafe) buzzes whenever it's plugged in, unless I have the isight or my mighty mouse on. Does anyone know what Apple is doing (if anything) to remedy the problem?

    Thirdly, how long does it usually take for the computer to recognize a bluetooth mighty mouse? Sometimes it's upwards of fifteen seconds for me.

    Thanks for any and all help.

    For anyone with the buzzing magsafe, if I give Apple a call, will they do something about it? I don't live close to an Apple store, so for any warranty work, I'd have to ship it away. I don't want to unless I know they'll do something about it.

    The screws on the left side of the case serve no purpose other than for looks. It's normal that you can push it in, since they're not really screwed to anything.

    Alright, thanks.
    I guess then, the only thing I have left to ask is regarding the magsafe..

    I just had to bump this. This thread is about three years old, I found it via Google, and it exactly answers the question I had.
