    Just checking to see if anyone else has had that this problem since upgrading to 10.6.2 I have an older MBP that is on its second battery. I dont normally use that battery as this is my only computer. it has about 61 cycles on it and seems to be in good health. the MBP turned its self off all of a sudden with about 60% charge left

    Is this a repeated incident, or just once? It's possible you have dead cells in the battery...

    just happened for the first time today. i had this happen with an older battery which they replaced. i just didnt think that this battery would do the same as its a bit newer and while the MBP is usually plugged in, i try and run it through a complete cycle at least once a month.
