Talkin’ PowerBook G3 Battery Charging Blues

When I plugged in my PowerBook this morning, the icon in the menu bar that indicates battery status didn’t change to show it was plugged in. Uh oh, I thought. The last two times that happened I had to replace the AC adapter. But this time the adapter doesn’t look damaged? Is it the famous “power management reset” problem? No, apparently not, if the instructions I got for resetting the power management unit are any good.

Boy I wish the Apple store in Bellevue had opened already.
