    Hi fellow MBP users,

    Just bought my MBP a few weeks ago, 15" base model and I get this response when I plug in the MagSafe sometimes. When I pull it out and put it back in again, sometimes it goes away.

    Any idea what might be causing it?

    Try an SMC reset. The System Management Controller may not be reading the battery sensors correctly.

    I sometime get that when it is around 95%. If it drops below it, it will start charging.

    OK, this is NORMAL.
    The MacBooks doesn't charge the battery if it's 95% full, or higher!!

    Not Charging, seems to have a detection cycle.

    I have this occur once or twice too. Even at 52% I seem to get a small detection cycle where it waits in the not charging phase and then will kick over to charge. In the mean time your computer is running off of the adapter so your battery is essentially removed.
