    Is there anything i can specifically do to maintain battery power for as long as possible during my Macbooks life? I have been putting it to sleep every night since i got it. Should i run it on battery power as much as possible rather than running it on AC power? Thanks.

    There are many threads on this, but to sum it up. Leave you MacBook plugged in as much as possible. Battery's have charge cycles and over time they will lose their juice. Once a month drain your battery down and then charge it back up. This should keep it in great shape. Don't be scared to run off battery power, but if you have the option. Always plug her in. Cheers, tom
