    This issue has been going on for about a month now.

    The LED of the connector at the end of the power cable used to light up 100% of the time, either green, or yellow when charging.

    Lately and randomly, I noticed the green light was very dim.. I just moved it lightly and it went back to the regular brightness again.

    Last night I noticed the LED was completely off.. But the energy indicator at the status bar was normal (charged). Again, I moved the cable a little bit and it lit up to the bright green color. :confused:

    I've just checked my warranty, still have 7 months to go. I'm planning to buy AppleCare within these 7 months cause I'm planning to keep my MBP for at least 3-4 more years.

    Currently, I'm in the middle east and there are no :apple: stores around.

    I'm feeling like some problems will start to manifest and I'm afraid of not being able to fix them if they do until I get back to the U.S

    I'm starting to get worried... :(

    I don't think I've ever had this happen before I upgraded to Lion. :eek:

    Any more input/observations, people?
