just fyi kiddies, take real damn good care of your power cords. they look all sturdy and white and nice, but i've just paid nz$149 for a new magsafe one because it spent a bit too much time bent at funny angles.

nah, it was pretty vital i got the cord asap because otherwise i'd not be able to get much schoolwork done with a dead laptop and desktops with no office installed.

yeah, those power cords are so expensive. for some reason the light is rarely on for mine or is sometimes just a very dim green. but it's still charging so i won't worry about how to spend nonexistent money just yet

i think the big issue is be very careful with it when you roll it up. i wasn't too careful when i packed it to drag it halfway around the world, and also make sure it doesn't twist too much when you're using your laptop in bed or whatever.

this is above and beyond the not shit care instructions like pull it out and plug it in by the plug, not the cord and so on.

of course, now that i've got a new one my old one is working just fine. i know it'll crap out later when i move it, but i'll keep it on hand for my desk or something.

i roll it up all normal like, as in i just wrap it around itself. i do try to keep it from getting bent because it bugs me when cords get like that. i had a job where the handset cord wrapped up in itself repeatedly. i was only the second person to use the phone in a years' time, so i don't know what they did. i could never get it unwrapped. oh well, no one uses the phone now so it's not like it matters.

same here for keeping the cords straight, but ultimately if i'm laying in bed not paying attention to the cords first and foremost, it just happens. i also wrapped it around itself, but possibly too tight.

my cord had similar issues as yours with it claiming it wasn't charging or the light being fully charged, but i'd had those probs for some time, so that's probably a macbook thing.

My housemate's power cord stopped working. She went to our local Apple Store, and they gave her a new one free of charge. I thought about going to pick one up just to have an extra.
