    So i searched around the forum for quite a bit and still
    cant find an answer to my problem. so the past month
    or so my macbook pro CD has been dying around 20%
    of battery life.

    has anyone experienced this problem? i decided to see
    if you guys found way around this before i go to apple
    for help.

    any help is appreciated. thanks.

    Have you installed the new battery update from Software Update?

    Funny thing is, I didn't have any battery trouble ... then I installed the update. Now, the machine just shuts off ... no warning, no sleep. The battery isn't even drained.

    This is driving me crazy.

    I got this problem.

    I brought it to my not-so-very-local Apple repair centre and it was fixed under warrenty.

    Though it did take them 8 days (in the middle of the most hectic stage of uni with regards of assignments to do!) to fix it though.

    They replaced the battery.
