Currently Being ModeratedJan 19, 2010 7:39 AM (in response to ReeceD)Your limited warranty does cover the Apple supplied power adapter, as would an AppleCare Protection Plan if you purchased one. I would suggest you contact Apple ((44) 0844 209 0611 in the UK) and let them know what is going on. They can let you know if you are covered or not.

I had the same problem when my power connection started acting temperamental, and then stopped working altogether. I thought about buying a new cord, but decided I would try to clean it first.
I found that there was dust buildup which prevented it from making a successful connection. Just be careful that you don't damage anything if you do try to clean it.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
