    No, it shouldn't be behaving like that. Hopefully you don't have a dodgy battery or adaptor. Try resetting your SMC and see if the problem persists. If it does, you might have to take it back to Apple. :eek:

    As far as the power adapter, I'm pretty sure that shouldn't happen.

    As far as just randomly waking from sleep, there is a Bluetooth preference that wakes it up from sleep if there's a connection made (it says your mouse or keyboard, but there have several people that said any Bluetooth device could wake it up randomly). So I'd turn that option off and see if that helps the random wake-ups.
