My friend's sister has one, and she had the same issue. The thing is that the standard charger can only handle to charge the computer. It can't handle charging the computer and running it at the same time. If you buy the next one up, it can do both simultaneously.

Check the Adaptor with a multimeter to see if that is working if that is it may be your power jack on the ibook, I believe that these are on a separate board to the logic board (motherboard) so they are quite easy to replace. Good luck!
