    My power book connector won't stay on (charging.) I can plug it in, but after maybe 4 or 5 hours, it cuts out. Unplugging/replugging it from the computer does nothing - only physically unplugging it from the wall will get it to kick in.
    What might be causing this??

    Is it by chance a Yo-yo power adaper? If so, it is a common problem, that is why they went to the white brick power adaper. If it is a brick, I'd replace it, sounds like its got a bad capicitator or resistor network, causing overheating to cut out the power.

    Good Luck.
