    I've had my Powerbook for a little over two months now and I absolutely will never go back to a PC. However, there is a really strange problem that just cropped up. The machine randomly shuts down. I believe it has to do with the battery, but the battery meter shows ~35% just before it shuts down. So, I plug it in, and it starts back up. I charge it untill the power plug glows green instead of orange but it only charges to 99%. Is my battery showing signs of memory after only two months? What's going on? :confused:

    did you configure the battery when you first got it? meaning you charged it then drained it completely and then fully charged it again?>

    Open system prefs then energy saver. Check the options under it.

    I ended up calling Apple and they are sending me a new battery free.
