    Hello!
    Packing up this morning I discovered that my MacBook pro's power adapter was leaking a yellow greasy substance through the openings left by the plastic flips where the cable gets stored.
    I haven't submerged the adapter in anything, nor dropped any fluid into it. Could it be lubrication for the flips, or is something inside melting out? I cannot think of anything that could leak from a power adapter.
    Any suggestions will be appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Paul

    err.... I've never heard of that either. Time to stop using that one and get a replacement.

    That's scary... I guess it might be the white plastic which is melting? I'd get a replacement immediately if that yellow substance came from within the power adapter.
