My MagSafe adapter light goes out periodically

My T-Connector style MagSafe LED (green light) goes off periodically. Disconnecting and reconnecting the T connector will turn it back on.

This Apple support note was written for people like me...

Apple Portables: Troubleshooting MagSafe adapters

...Whether your product is in or out-of-warranty, you can take your adapter to an Apple-Authorized Service Provider or Apple Retail Store for evaluation and replacement if necessary. You may be eligible for a replacement adapter free of charge provided there are no signs of accidental damage...

I've inspected and cleaned the connector. For now I live with it, but if it gets worse I'll have it replaced. Sounds like an understated semi-recall ...

Update 3/6/11: It seems to be fixed, or at least a lot better. I guess it just needed to be cleaned.
