I just noticed my battery says Not Charging and when I unplug the Magsafe connector my external display shuts off and the computer goes to sleep. Any ideas? The connector also shows green on the LED. The charge says its at 95%, it was at 100% this morning.

With the Macbook open thought and my external display as my primary when I unplug the connector it doesn't go to sleep. I don't know whats going on lol

Problems gone now, still have no idea what it was. I think its designed to go to sleep when the connector is unplugged and the laptop is closed. Back to 100% now.

I had the same thing, it said "Not Charging" and the thing was green even though my battery was only at %90. I unplugged and replugged it in and the light went amber and it said [~} (0:11) I have a macbook black 2.4ghz 2gb 250gb hdd.

Hope this helps a bit.
