    Does anyone else have this problem? I have a 1.33 15" PB and where the power cord meets the computer, the connection has been getting harder and harder to make. It often has to be twirled in a circle to get it to light up or removed and put back on or any combo of the above. I am still under warranty though. I will probably send it in before the warranty expires. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

    I find it is touchy but not so bad that it pisses me off, just sometimes when I'm moving it around I'll notice the light isn't on

    As mine has gotten older, it's become a bit of an annoiance. I find it to be more of a problem if there's a lot of tension on the power cord perpendicular to the plug.

    That is something I would have fixed before the warranty runs out.
