    Running a late 2011 Macbook Pro and I've been running in Clamshell mode and cycle the battery at least a couple times a month.

    Clearly when I unplug the power supply my Mac shuts off.. Then if I try to power it on no juice..

    I guess I would atleast check and see if the battery in connected!! I know most upgrades require u to disconnect the battery, baring that I would let apple look at it. Still under warranty or Apple Care?

    Yup.. Since you noted as Late 2011, it is now Late 2012, hopefully you have gotten Applecare if 'not too early-late 2011' or have it accordingly still covered.. :apple:

    Not much other help we little folks can do here, I don't think.. Off to the Apple Store/ make a phone call likely about it..

    That being said, I do believe that The Batteries DO like to be used a bit.. and if you have 76 Cycles in One Year, and Constantly Plugged In, it may not be enjoying its Life.. Perhaps.. :(

    ~ Someone smarter than me will hopefully let me know, as I would be curious about that too ~ Good Luck, hope it works out!!

    Definitely take it to Apple and let them check to see if your battery is defective. If so, they'll replace it free if it's still covered by warranty/AppleCare. If it's not defective or not covered, you may have to pay for a new battery.

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
