I have no idea whats wrong. I'll be sitting there, with over 50% battery life left, and then BAM! its suddenly at 0% and my MacBook goes into hibernation. Anybody have a clue of whats going on?

It's possible that somehow the battery settings got changed to enter hibernation when battery reaches 50%. Try checking the preferences and make sure that it is set to enter hibernation mode at somewhere around 3 or 5%.
