Hi, my macbook pro charges just fine but whenever I play "world of warcraft" the battery indicator changes to "not charging"

Anyone know whats causing this?

It looks like you might be using more power than you're taking in? I just skimmed over it, but that's what might possibly be the problem.

Nothing that I know of. You could test it out...make sure absoutely nothing else is running other than World of Warcraft, then when you start up WoW make sure ALL of the graphics are set to as low as humanly possible and maybe set the Macbook on a hard, cool surface and see what happens?


Other than that, do a little more googling and see if you can find any more information. Also, contact Blizzard and Apple.
