Wow, this is an interesting case! DC-ins are very strange creatures...I've run across many in iBooks that appear dead or problematic, but once they are disconnected for a while, then re-connected, they work like new. It's as if they hold onto a "bad charge" which affects their behavior until it is allowed to dissipate. The question in this case seems to be, what is causing that "bad charge"?
-Here's what I'd do: First, make sure you have a 65-watt AC adapter, since 15" aluminums don't like 45-watt ACs. That could be the problem right there -- 45W adapters often work to a certain degree, but then the situation gets flaky when the power requirements get too high. Next, since you mentioned having your DC-in temporarily disconnected made it work temporarily, I'd go in and disconnect it for an hour or overnight, then re-connect it. Next, I would remove your battery, and connect your laptop to AC power, but do it on the other side of the house (on a different circuit). If it works in that condition for a sustained period, you can try either the battery, or plugging into the original power source, to see if it goes bad again. Doing this, step-by-step, hopefully you'll be able to isolate the issue.

That could be the problem right there -- 45W adapters often work for a while, but then weird stuff starts happening as they (I assume) are ultimately unable to meet the power requirement.

If none of this helps, you may be looking at a bad board.
