    Hey,

    My wife has a macbook and the battery no longer seems to hold a charge. If the powercord ebcomes unplugged for more than a half a minute it just shuts itself down.

    I am hoping this is not a battery problem, although it most likely is, but I was wondering if this was a common problem or not?

    (Her Macbook is about two years old now)

    Download CoconutBattery and check the battery and post it here.

    eBay has decent priced batteries, I have had good luck with them.
