I left my macbook pro on for a few days straight, and since then the battery doesn't really charge. Did I totally screw it up, is it salvageable? I take it I probably just need to buy a new battery?

What do you mean it doesn't charge? Like is it stuck between 93-99%? If so, this is normal. If it is below 90% and not charging then something is wrong and you should calibrate the battery.

Mine has been left on for months straight.

Am pretty sure my wife's MB, now getting close to 4 years old, has never been shut down except as required by updates.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
