    Hello,

    When i have the power cable plugged in into the laptop and i am on skype using a logitech headset it gives off a little humming sound. but as soon as i unplug the power cable it goes away. what can i do??

    I have tried plugging it into the keyboard and both USB ports and it still does it.

    I also have the aluminium macbook, and whilst plugged in if you move your fingers along the metal you can feel the static causing a friction of some form. When unplugged it just feels like smooth metal. Strange :confused:

    What happens if the macbook body is touching something metal that is earthed or will discharge the static by other means? I can't test right now, but it may work?
