    Ok so the yesterday I slept my MacBook Pro and they unplugged the magsafe. Then when I tried to wake it from sleep later on I realized that it had turned off. So I tried to turn it back on (not plugged in) and I heard the HD and SuperDrive turn on and then suddenly turn off. I checked the battery meter on the battery and it was about half way charged. When I got home that night I plugged it in and it turned on fine. Then today sense the battery was charged up full I thought that I would recalibrate the battery so I unplugged the power and boom it turned off. Then I reset the PRam and the PMU and the problem still occurs. Also, the battery shows an 88% max capacity in coconut battery.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    -Wes

    Did you check to see if your battery falls under the recall list?

    One day I was using my MBP and my power cord fell off and it just shut off... The battery was fully charged. Then they replaced my battery on the recall.

    No it doesn't but I checked at Apple Suport Discussions and they said that they had the same problem, called apple and apple sent them a new battery (next day) even though it wasnt on the recall.

    A battery can be defective even though it doesn't have a recalled serial number.
    This definitely sounds like a bad one, just call AppleCare and I'm sure they'll send you a new one.

    I agree - they'll probably send you a new battery if you describe your problem to them.
