    I just purchased my first macbook about a month ago, and I love it. However, I've encountered an issue with the battery. Sometimes, I leave my computer unplugged in my house, use it for a little while, then do other things. Well, the last few times I would come back maybe 3-4 hours later and the battery would be dead; it won't turn on until I plug it back in. Since the battery is supposed last 4+ hours with light usage, I'm worried there is a problem. I have it set to go to sleep and dim the screen on the default settings. Anybody else experience this/have advice/know what I should do? Thank you in advance.

    sounds like you do have a problem, are you sure its sleeping when you leave it? It might be awake?

    I'm about 80% sure that it's sleeping, when I get home I'll check for certain.

    Sounds like it's not sleeping, the white light should be pulsing when it's asleep.
