    Hello,

    Whenever my battery gets drained, my MacBook Pro turns off as if the battery was pulled out, I lose all my work when this happens.

    This started after I installed Snow Leopard, before, it would just go to sleep and my work is safe.

    Why is this happening?

    Thanks.

    If anyone has any ideas on this topic, I'd be interested to know also.

    I"m pretty sure this has only started occurring for me since snow leopard, before that it would go to sleep and restore everything once the power cord was plugged back in

    but thanks for the suggestion, it was worth a try

    I'll have a read of that now, thank you. I did try looking around on the a few forums, including apples, for the solution and only managed to find this thread.

    I wonder if Apple will cover the battery under Applecare?? I know it's not usually covered, but I've only got 199 cycles on it, and before I started running it up and down over the past few days it was only on about 180. Aren't you supposed to get 500 or something out of the battery before you can expect it to die

    Thanks again, just going to have a nose at that thread now

    Ditto

    My (very new) MBP does this too :(

    It is the cheapest 13" MBP, but with the 128G SSD. By the way, the battery life is awesome :)

    I believe the problem is OS software, not hardware - I doubt replacing the battery will help, but I'd be very happy to be proved wrong!
