Question--computer just shutting off...

I need help--hoping maybe someone has some insight. My MacBook is about 2 years old and has started acting up. If I unplug it from the power source, it shuts itself off after about 5 minutes. The battery reads as "normal" and having a charge. It's fine as long as I have it plugged in, but if I unplug--forget it. Anyone have anything similar happen or have any suggestions?

Have you tried resetting the SMC? Here's a link explaining how to do so:

Good luck, and I hope it's a simple fix!“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.” Marcus Aurelius
