I have a 15" 867 TiBook and the battery has been acting wierd lately. When it is charged it will last for a while but sometimes it just randomly dies when its not being used even though its fully charged. I checked it with coconut battey but the stats seemed odd. Is the battery on its way out?

I'd change the battery, especially if you plan to use that computer for another year or so :-), Li-Ion batteries do not last that long :-(. If the number of loadcycles is correct, I doubt it, 4200 cycles... more tahn 10 years at 1 cycle per day... sounds a bit off. Probably the only right number there is the age :-).

Time for a new battery.
