Question about the battery, at the top of the screen it has said calculating for a while now, and it shows that it's 95% charged even though the color is green on the cord. Is something wrong?

Has it been calibrated?

You should do so on it's 1st use and then every few months thereafter.

Between 95-99% it doesnt always charge. Once its full charged, the charger stops working until the battery is back down to about 94-95%. Once there, then the charger will turn back on.

Read This.

I loosely followed these instructions when I 1st got my macbook and after a couple days it would charge to about 99% then got to "pending" and the charger would never go green. I took it through a proper calibration and now all is rosy.
