    Battery Problem
    so, i have a problem clearly.

    i cannot just unplug my charger and let my mac book fully power down (full battery drain)
    within minutes (like 3-5) it just goes dim and dies.
    today in class i forgot my charger for example, and i looked at the power saver and it said i have "4:58" and sure enough 3 minutes later my mac dies..

    can anyone explain why?
    i'll paste my system profiler.

    That's ok...I just wanted to know if it was a newer laptop, or something much older.

    Try downloading & installing this program:

    coconut-flavour.com - [coconutBattery 2.6.5]

    And post back with the results.

    Everything in System Profiler appears fine. Nothing wrong with a cycle count of 60 on a machine of that age.

    Also, the 4:58 represents hours and minutes, not minutes and seconds.
    If the machine is powering off within just a few minutes, sounds like there is an issue with the battery.
    Call your local Apple store and make an appointment to take it in.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
