    iBook switches off
    Hi everyone!

    This evening my iBook started to do something interesting:

    When I remove the AC adapter, it just loses power after a second or two... *zap* and it's off.

    It won't start either.
    If I plug-in again, it'll start without problems and even shows that the battery is fully charged...

    Unplugged again, and *zap* it turns off after about 20 seconds...

    ???

    Any ideas? I just repaired permissions and ran crons?

    Going to try resetting PRAM next...

    HELP!

    I think I heard about this before, but can't find any threads on it...

    Ok I reset the power management system and it seems to have fixed it.

    Here's how you do it for reference:

    Reboot, before you see apple logo press:
    Shift-command-option-power key simultaneously and release.

    Then the 'book will reboot and all should be good.
