HT4124 can I keep the magsafe power adapter plugged in to computer all the time?

Can I keep the magsafe power adapter plugged in to my computer from the power source at all times?

it is ok to keep it in all the time, BUT at least once a month let it run the battery down to 10-15% then do a full recharge.

  • Hello, My white McBook (2008 or 2009) recently stopped turning on.  When I hook up the Magsafe power adapter, the light shows green, but the computer will not turn on, or make a sound.  I've tried the re-boot option, but nothing works.  Please advise!

    Hello,
    My white McBook (2008 or 2009) recently stopped turning on.  When I hook up the Magsafe power adapter, the light shows green, but the computer will not turn on, or make a sound.  I've tried the re-boot option, but nothing works.  I first thought I needed a new battery because the lights at the back are all off, but shouldn't the computer turn on once the power adapter is hooked up and the light on the Magsafe adapter shows green?  I'm a computer doofus, so please be kind.  Please advise!  Thanks in advance.

  • Replacing the plastic cap on the magsafe power adapter

    I really love the tiny plastic caps that Apple sticks on top of the magsafe power adaptors, but alas! I finally lost mine today and am wondering where I can find a replacement (or two, or three). I have had no luck searching online for a solution.
    Please advise!
    Thanks,
    Michael

    Just wondering whether anybody else who has lost the magsafe adapter's plastic cap knows where to track down a replacement. It seems like a common item to lose, yet I can't find a vendor, including Apple, that is selling replacements. I'm worried that the adapter might get dirty or ruined from exposure to dust and other particles.
    Thanks for your help!

  • Why does it take me so many tries before I can get the amber and/ or green light to come on, on my MagSafe power adapter?

    I have been having a problem for a little while now, and I have decided to overlook it for the most part. However, it is really starting to get on my nerves. The issue I don't believe is with the MacBook Pro itself, however with the MagSafe power adapter. The adapter itself is in great condition, it is brand new, but when I attach it to the computer, the computer reads that it is there, as it shows it is charging or is charged as shown by the battery indicator in the top right of the OS X toolbar. However, the amber and/ or green light doesn't come on, right away - the first time - most of the time, on the adapter head itself. I usually have to unplug it and plug it back in multiple times before I get a light to come on. I have tried to clean the adapter itself, and the MagSafe port on the computer, but that seems to only help for a short amount of time, and it doesn't look real dirty, or like any pins are stuck on the adapter. I have also tried other outlets, but that doesn't seem to help, so I don't think I am getting dirty power.

    Unfortunately, it *could* be the computer. And it could be the adapter.  Aside from trying Resetting the System Management Controller there's not much you can do except taking it in for testing.

  • Can you plug in your 60w magsafe power adapter to peru without harming it?

    Can you plug in your 60w magsafe power adapter to peru without harming it?

    Yes you will need a plug adapter, the power supply is rated for 100v-240v. Apple has a travel kit full of adapters you could also check the web for a particular one for your needs.

  • Can get past the "Power adapter plugging into wall" icon

    I just got my brothers older 60gb Photo ipod and am trying to get it working on my computer. Did the whole restore thing, but now it is stuck at the Power adapter plugging into wall icon. I didn't have the original wall plug so I got a universal one at Radio Shack. Only the ipod still has the darn icon on it and I can't get past it. Any suggestions>

    Lets do a trick. Connect the iPod and the cabel. The USB connector has 2 prongs that stick out a little more than the rest the goal. is to push it in a little so it charges but does not sync. Give It A Try.
