    Welcome to the forums ...

    How old is that battery ?
    As an initial activity, would it be possible to use the MBP on battery until such time the 10% battery warning comes up, then close the lid and let the battery drain completely.
    ( Can take another hour or so )

    Then recharge the battery to it's full capacity.

    Works on my machine .... although batteries loose capacity over the years ... normal behavior.

    Cheers ... McBie

    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    hello again and thanks for the welcome,

    the battery is 6 month old.

    I'll try to see if this solves the problem ...

    thanks

    If it is only 6 months old, then that is not normal behavior for a battery.
    Mine if from April 2008 and I am at 80% of its original capacity.
    Post back your result and we can take it from there.

    I guess it's time to replace the battery ...

    If it's only 6 months old, Isn't that covered by Apple Warranty.
    Not sure ... maybe another member here is more up to speed with warranty issues.

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    It is a limited one year warranty based on this:
    Apple Portables: Battery terminology and key concepts

    It sounds like a faulty battery, which Apple will replace if they find that it actually is defective.
