For about six months now my Macbook battery has been a bit flaky: only lasting for an hour or so on a full charge and the computer then shutting down without warning. It will then start up again after ten minutes or so on charge.

The same thing happened today. Computer was in use - syncing with my PDA - when it seemed to shut down. I closed the lid to leave it to recharge and the sleep light came on. However, it won't wake up noe or restart.

I have left it on charge; tried resetting the PRAM and power manager. The sleep light has gone off now and the machine won't restart at all - it seems dead.

Please! anyone got any ideas of what else I can try!
