This is the third time in the last month when my computer has failed to charge. The first time, they replaced the charger. The second time, I had to wait a week because they had to change the audioboard. My college classes start tomorrow, and I really hope they can actually finally fix the problem PERMANENTLY. I don't want to keep coming back to the apple store every week just because my computer won't charge.

Anyone else have this issue???

YES! I have the exact same problem. I replaced the charger on mine and confirmed that the old charger was bad. However, with the new charger, I have to reset the SMC (System Management Controller ; see Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)) every other time I plug in the power adapter. Apparently resetting the SMC is supposed to do the trick. I have no idea what's causing me to reset it **** near every time I need to use the computer.

ok it seems like it can now charge if I shut down the computer, take out the battery, and put it back in again... I just hope that there aren't any more future problems...
