I purchase the latest 2013 Retina Macbook Pro, which I pluged in my charger and walked away from my computer!  When I arrived, my computer was in sleep mode and I noticed a faint burning smell and felt my computer and it was extremely HOT!  I then felt the power brick and it was even hotter!  10 minutes after I awoke the computer (ESTIMATED), the computer actually cooled down...  It's not hot to the touch but still warm!  On the other hand, the power brick is still extremely HOT!


Please help!  I started the charge at 3% and awoke it around 78% and now it's at 89%


Also, how long does it take to charge from 3% to 100%?  It's been about 2 hours to reach 89%






NOTE:  Any support would be great!  I could use the advice as this is personally my first MAC!  I am thinking a software update to fix the computer from heating up when sleeping but I am unsure about the power brick!

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9), Late 2013 Retina Macbook Pro
