MacBook Pro 15" battery life
I have a 2006 MBPro which died last week. One evening last week it suddenly switched off. I thought that MBPs would still work, plugged into the mains, but there is absolutely no life at all in the machine connected to mains. The little light by the magplug does not light up now either. Can anyone shed any light on whether there might be something else wrong other than the battery if it won't work even when mains connected. Coconut showed that it had had 197 cycles, which, from what I understand, is not that much for a battery, more like 300 should be the norm.

Yes, it should power on with just the AC power connected. Have you tried removing the battery altogether and plugging it straight into the mains?
