    I'm not too sure if it's my charger or my macbook. When I plug in the charger magnet it does not light up orange or green. I'm at 50% on the battery. It happened before but it worked a couple minutes after trying again (not sure how) But has any of you had this problem before? I'm at work right now at a mall and there's an apple store inside of it. Should I just go there and ask about it? Thanks.

    Nope haven't had this problem but why are you waiting when there is an Apple Store beside you. Go ahead and get it checked.:)

    wow, I walk to the apple store and back to work and guess what? My charger starts working. I have an appointment again tomorrow so i'm probably going to ask for a new charger.

    I just unplugged the Magsafe from the wall, and the Macbook... let it set for about 5 mins, and plugged it back in. It works fine now...

    Your power supply is going back. Replace it.
