Gypsy power cord plugging in Warning

We all know that the power cord sticks out and pressing too hard makes the parts fall inside. But one more word of caution. Suppose you are off the power and you feel like plugging into the A.C do switch off your G and then connect. Same goes while removing the power cord. I was designing and was low on battery - and so rather than go through the hassle just decided to plug in and it switched off and there went my unsaved work. Also another time when I did the same thing instead of switching off -  the screen became dim and  light - the colors especially the pink was more a gray pink. Thankfully resetting the gypsy and also using it till it drained and then recharging fixed the problem.
So a warning if you want to attach or detach the power cord to the G you are better off doing it when it is switched off.

Thanks for the info on this. My gypsy hasn't been charging with the AC adapter so I've had to use my computer to charge it. I've also noticed the flickering when I do plug it in.
