supposed to take anywhere from 2-4hrs to charge these things.

mine seems to charge fast up to about 80%, but after that, it trickle charges for 1.5hrs

2 hours from nothing to full is about what I've seen, and I've had this MacBook since June.

About 2 hours sounds right, that's the same for me. If I'm browsing, on about 30% screen brightness, I get around a 4 hour battery life.

last time i did a full discharge (sleep and about an hour more sleeping off of battery), it took a couple hours to get up to about 96 percent or so. the last few percent seemed to take about that long again to top off for some reason.
while charging i kept the laptop on but closed with periodic opening to check the battery level.

Hi guys.

I just bought my mackbook one week ago. I got my battery with 10% left and start charging it in sleep mode. It took 4 hours (I just used it the last hour with the sreen off (connected to a TV watching a divx on hard drive)

Is this normal. Does the battery takes so much to full charge?

Thanks,

Pacman

No. Just the modem. But as it was in sleep mode everything was turn off.
