I have the June 09 release of the Macbook White 2.13 ghz

For some reason when I got home from work my macbook was completely dead. I was gone from 4:30-10:00 (only 5.5 hours). I had left it open but it should've gone to sleep. The battery was still on 75% when I had left it, and I have my right bottom corner set to turn the screen off (which I did). Energy saving preferences are set to sleep after 15 mins, display sleep after 10 (and it already was), Hard disk to sleep when possible, yatta yatta yatta, meaning it definitely should not have died. Now i've had my adaptor plugged in for about 15 mins and the battery is still at 0% with a ten hour charge remaining.

This doesn't sound right, and if the battery hasn't budged yet that looks like a biiiiiiiiiiig problem....

Hey, have you tried to reset the PRAM and NVRAM of your Mac?

9 out of 10 times that does the trick, if you provided the right info.
