    Power cord randomly stops working.
    I have Macbook and the other day I noticed that every now and then the power cord will stop supplying power. Lots of times it is after I move the laptop. The light turns off and my macbook shows a switch between running off the power supply to running on the battery.

    I looked around the contacts and although it is a little dirty where the magnet touches, the actual contacts themselves look clean.

    Anyone have any ideas? At first I thought it might be the outlet, but it has happened now on several different ones.
