    The magnet that keeps my computer closed is getting weaker by the day. its to the point where it slightly lifts and closes when i pick it up. any suggestions on what to do about this annoying little issue?

    Mine does this on occasion too. Although in my case it seems like tension in the hinge rather than a magnet issue. I just press gently on the spine of the computer, where the top case meets the hinge once it's closed and that keeps it shut.
