    Ok so is it okay to leave my charger plugged into the wall socket on all the time? Even when im not charging my MPB? I have this strange fear that the charger will die on me faster if i leave it plugged in all the time, 24/7.

    I leave mine plugged in all the time, never had a problem. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I've seen this thread more than enough times. Try searching the forums (top right). You'll find a lot of threads that usually say that leaving it plugged in is OK;)

    It will use some electricity because it has internal resistance but that would be as much as most electric appliances when on standby.
