    Not sure how much of an issue it is. The light on my Mag safe (both of mine really) seems to go out after bit and if I unplug / replug it the light comes back.

    Any thoughts on why that is? I will try resetting my PMU / SMC when I get home. Its a 2007 2.16ghz white MacBook.

    This happens to me also. However, it still keeps charging and if you look very closely at the light, you will see it is not out, merely very, very dim. I have no idea why this happens, but it doesn't seem to matter in terms of charging.

    This is a known issue that many have tried unsuccessfully (last I checked) to fix in many different ways. This is the biggest complant I have with my wife's MB.

    It doesn't really matter, You just have to wiggle it about, and the light will come back on.
