    You might want to recalibrate your battery and see if the problem goes away. Just use your laptop on the battery without plugged to the wall until the computer shuts down. It might take a while to drain the battery though. You might want to watch a DVD on your laptop to drain the battery faster. You will first get a warning saying the battery level is low. Just keep using until the computer goes into the sleep. Then plug into the wall, and fully charge the battery. Apple recommends recalibrating the battery every once in a while.
