Ibook sleeps if cord pulled out too quickly

Message #1 - Posted 2005/10/05 - Nigel McMillan

Havent been able to see a solution here (if there is one).

If I have my ibook plugged into mains power and I pull out the plug too quickly it immediately shuts down ie the battery doesn't kick in even though it runs perfectly fine on battery and its fully charged. I can only get the computer back by plugging it back in and hard restart (power button for 5 sec). It always been this way but it annoys me now.

Seems to me, the logical thing to do is either to have the computer fixed or stop pulling out the power cord too quickly.

Sounds logical but the question is - is this normal behaviour or is the computer broken?

Something is wrong with it.

If you have done all the power reset stuff, then you might have a hardware problem.
