    powerbook shuts down when power cord is removed
    My 15" Powerbook 1.8mhz shuts down when I remove the power cord. The battery was replaced by Apple not that long ago and seems to be holding the full charge. Is this a hardware issue or software?

    Does the battery symbol on the menu bar say whether it is charging the battery? Does it show it X'ed out?

    Check under System Profiler to see the stats on the battery.
