    I bought a MacBook about 3 months ago and it has been going fine up until recently. Last week it started switching off as soon as I disconnected the power cable, and it won't switch on without it. Was just wondering if anyone knows how to fix this problem as it isn't very useful to me if I have to plug it in all the time.

    Like I said, it was working perfectly fine until last week, then one day it just decided not to work without the power cable. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Faulty battery I think. Get on to Apple for a replacement.

    I agree, it looks like it is acting like the battery isn't even there.

    Mine just started doing this three days ago.

    They're sending me a battery at no charge. I don't even have phone support and they took care of the issue over the phone for me. Call them pronto.

    I think it has happened to a few people - it happened to a friend of mine. Lord knows what it's all about but Apple seem to be more than happy to send out replacement batteries.
