    mine has been starting to do the same thing. it is still charging and not showing any signs of having a problem.

    That doesn't sound right. I would call Apple right away. I suspect it may just be the adapter light, but I would want to be sure. They'll fix whatever is wrong!

    I have the same issue...seems to still be working tho...and I still get a full charge on the battery. I have noticed however, when I boot into windows, I don't have this problem,the light stays on green/orange. Under 10.4 and 10.5 it's a crap shoot as to whether the light will stay on...but like I said, at least it is still charging....
