View Full Version : Powerbook battery vs. MacbookPro (late 08)

Mar 28, 2009, 01:01 PM
Hey guys,

I used to have a Powerbook G4, and that baby could 'sleep' for like 4 days without recharging the battery.

My late 08 MBP can't even last 24 hours without needing to recharge.

Any ideas?

Um...sell the macbook pro and buy a powerbook? :D

I don't know if this will make a difference, but have you tried calibrating the battery on the new machine? Turning off bluetooth, dimming the screen, and turning off wi-fi might make a difference as well.

Reset your PMU/SMC...if that doesn't work get a new battery from Apple
