There's a simple free solution to this: take apart a ball-point pen (the type with the inch-long tightly-coiled spring, which you may already have a small stash of, from accidentally bringing them home from your bank). Wrap the spring around the cable at the end where it meets the power brick -- takes a few minutes, but isn't hard. Slide it down the cable until it's snug against the power brick. Secure it there with some electrical tape if it seems prone to sliding up the cable away from the power brick. Do this same thing at the other end of the cable (the connector-to-computer end) if that seems likely to come apart too.
