    It says 'Calculating until full' on the status bar. When I open coconutbattery.app, it says the battery charger is connected but is not charging. The light on my battery chord is green. I restarted the iBook and it still says 'Calculating until full'.

    How can I fix this?

    Addendum: it also says battery charge is 95%.

    Call apple, they might be able to do something about it.

    May or may not help, but repair permissons.

    How old is the 'book?

    Batteries are odd things, some hold their charges forever, others die quickly. I've got two iBooks here that I've fixed up. One's 14 months old, has gone through 77 load cycles and is at 89% of original capacity. The other is 27 months old, has gone through 427 load cycles and is at 90% of original capacity. Crazy.
