    I know this may not be huge but the battery percentage on my white Macbook shows 95% but the green light is on the charging cord showing it is fully charged.

    It has never done that before so I'm wondering what is up. I restarted it to see if it would reset but it didn't do anything.

    Any thoughts?

    It's normal that your battery may stop charging between 93-99%. For details, read the CHARGING section of the following link. 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.

    The only reason I am concerned is because it never did this before. It always showed red until it was at 100%.

    It's normal. There's nothing to worry about. I encourage you to read the Battery FAQ.

    Ok thanks, Have read the battery thing a bunch of times. I know what it says.

    Just wanted the opinion of a user.

    That part of my computer on the bottom is really hot. My USB cord charging my phone is warm. Could that be causing this ?

    No, that's normal, as well. The CHARGING section of the Battery FAQ describes exactly why it stops charging at 95%. You don't have to look for another reason. It's functioning as it's designed to function.

    I've had this computer for years and all of the sudden things seem a bit off to me for some reason.

    Thanks for the help.
