    I bought a new 13" macbook pro today, 2.7GHz i7, but it has randomly shut down on me 4 or 5 times now, in the 10 hours that i have it. The first time was when i was setting up the mac when i first booted it up. Then i just assumed faulty OS install, i put in my vertex 3, installed the OS on there, but it happened a couple other times. Can i fix this? Should i return it? Thanks!

    Reset the SMC. Instructions in the following link under CHARGING. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    Are you running anything CPU/GPU intensive, that could drive your temps high enough to cause a shutdown? If not, I'd take it back and have them check it out.

    my temps reach 78, or 80, with the fans staying at 2k. Dont think thats a problem, plus i looked over on istat, and it reported 54C 2 minutes before a shutdown
