    Mine is the exact same way (Unibody late 2008 built in 3rd week of 2009).

    I have been thinking about taking it into the Apple store.

    My battery also pretty much discharges completely overnight when the computer is asleep. Awful. :(

    Both of you should take it to an Apple Store. That's not normal.

    No worries-- I did not take it as sarcastic.

    I guess life. Work has been extremely busy and other life issues. By the time I get a free hour or so the last thing I have been wanting to do is head to the mall to the Apple store.
