My Powerbooks giving me Electric Shocks! read on

I really wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this. Basically my Powerbook is giving me electric shocks.
I have one of the first series of G4 Titanium Powerbooks. When i plug the mains adaptor into the wall there must be some electric charge leaking through to the frame of the computer.
If you imagine yourself typing on a laptop, quite often your wrist and lower arm rest on the edges of the laptop frame. I feel this sudden burning pains on the skin of my wrists and short stings. It's actually quite painful but i haven't actually done anything about it..
I was thinking about complaining to apple and who knows they may send me a free G5!!!
To be honest though, i think it's quite diabolical!. Let me know if anyone else has experienced this before??
