    Hey guys,

    I used to have a Powerbook G4, and that baby could 'sleep' for like 4 days without recharging the battery.

    My late 08 MBP can't even last 24 hours without needing to recharge.

    Any ideas?

    Um...sell the macbook pro and buy a powerbook? :D

    I don't know if this will make a difference, but have you tried calibrating the battery on the new machine? Turning off bluetooth, dimming the screen, and turning off wi-fi might make a difference as well.

    Reset your PMU/SMC...if that doesn't work get a new battery from Apple
