    My MacBook Air was running with no issues yesterday. Today I turned it on and it started beeping 3 beep intervals. I assumed that the battery needed charging (?) so I plugged in the adapter. Everything then was running okay. The I noticed that the battery showed 95% charged, so I waited until it was at 100% and unplugged the charger. As soon as I unplugged it everything shutdown. I reconnected the charger everything worked fine and then downloaded CoconutBattery. But the results were okay, but I cannot figure out why everything shuts down. I went to an Apple technician at Best Buy and he told me the battery needs replacement? But the coconutBattery program tells me everything is fine. I also noted that when my charger is connected, once I shut my computer down, the light on the charger only stays on for about 3 minutes, then it goes off! Can anyone help me! Thanks.

    3 beeps is a RAM problem. Was the screen black when you turned it on?
