was reading in other threads and found this little app to be quite amusing... now just what is going on? my battery lasts around 4+ hours with really no battery saving options. i'm using this in my ibook g3

it gets down to around 40-45% and then it sleeps. when i plug it in and wake it, the battery is at 0%.

6521mAh? is that what is screwing up the percentages?

You need to calibrate your battery.

google: apple calibrate battery

yeah it's sleeping right now. been sleeping for last 5 hours and light is still slowly pulsating. i turned it off when coconut claimed the battery was around 20 mAh. so hopefully that solves the problem. the coconut seems to be a cool little app, glad i found that thread yesterday. i don't remember having cool **** like that on my xp laptop :p
