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.

can anyone explain why?

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.
