    after all is said and done, and heavy Macbook Air use, there is only one thing still bugging me.

    Its not the slightly uneven lighting, not the 3 hours charge nor the 3:30 battery life i get constantly, nor the 6200 RPM fan.

    When i charge to 100% and let it sleep for 12 hours, i lose about 20% of the charge. Yesterday i was at around 25% and when i opened it this evening, 24hrs later, there was nothing left.

    If i leave the macbook air closed, i think that the battery would reach 0% after 3 days.

    IMHO, this is not normal and some kind of leak. What is your experience ?

    Same here. I lose between 1 and 2% of battery life for every hour my MBA is asleep.

    I lose about 10-15% per night. But I usually plug it in at night.
