    Hi, I'm not new on mac, in fact I've been using mac since '85, 21 years (wow time goes fast), I post here because I'm having trouble with my 12" 867Mhz Superdrive PowerBook G4, The battery is pissing me off, It says it's full and when it's on 95% it goes to sleep, I connect the power adaptor and it says battery is 0% and starts charging, it never says XX time to go, is always calculatieng and when it's in 5% it turns the green led on and says Battery Fully Charged. I don't know what's happening, I did the ctrl+option+shift+power 5 seconds, and it resets the date( so it works) but no change in battery.

    Does anyone know how to fix it.

    Thanks

    Sorry about my english

    Sounds like your battery has had it(run out of cycles). I guess its time for a new battery.



    Bless

    You might be entitled to a new batter under the recent battery recall. I have the exact same machine and got a replacement battery.
