Thread: Battery Problem
10-05-2009, 11:32 AM #1Battery 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.

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.
