    My Powerbook works fine except for one annoying little issue, and i don't know if its supposed to do this or not.
    There's a small dent by where the power cable plugs into it which makes the cable come out more easily if i move the laptop when its plugged in.
    Whenever you unplug or plug it in, the computer freezes for about 30 seconds then continues working fine.
    Is this just an issue with it switching over to the different power source or something i should be concerned about, because as of now its just a nuisance but one i can deal with.

    Also, does anyone have suggestions on how to remove the little marks the keys make on the screen and any other stray finger prints and such from when other people abuse my 'book?

    Doesn't sound like you have an critical situation here, but with all that metal you might want to make sure nothing's shorting out. Also, I damaged the area around the AC connection on my last laptop, and this made it very hard to get the power hooked up and jammed the connector making it also hard to remove. Don't know if yours is that serious

    I heard iKlear (link) is a good solution to your second question along with an eyeglass-type cloth. I would steer away from paper products since most have a lot of lint.
