Hey guys,

My 12" PowerBook seems to have an odd sleeping pattern. On Wednesday night I closed my PB, it went to sleep (I watched the little light start strobing, so it actually went to sleep). There was 20% battery left. I opened it on Saturday morning, and the battery had completely ran out, it wouldn't go out of sleep (it was into the reserve battery). I charged it and now it's fine.

The weird thing is that sometimes when I put it to sleep it uses 2-3% per day, sometimes it goes power-crazy and uses like 10% per day. Is this normal?

Thanks,
m1k
