    Hey all,

    I have a 2009 aluminum MBP, 15 inch 2.66ghz processor and iStat pro is showing the battery health at about 85%, cycles 199. First off, are these normal numbers for a MBP of this age? It's a little over a year old obviously.

    Secondly, I've noticed for the past week or so that it's draining VERY quickly when I'm away from it. I will turn it on around 8 or 9 am and it's usually at around 80%, I will walk away from it and let it fall to sleep on its own and when I come back, it's dead. Now, if I put it sleep manually, this doesn't happen.

    Am I reading too much into this or do I have a potential problem on my hands based on what I've described?
