    Hey there,

    My battery life for MBP has recently been very low. When I fully charge it, its like 1.2hours. Its health however is about 84%!

    What's wrong?

    Thanks!

    Is Bluetooth and Wireless on?
    How high is your screen brightness??
    Is using a new unibody MBP which vodeo card are you using?

    These can all impact battery life greatly

    First off, I have a late 2007 Laptop!
    Second of all, yes all those are on! BUT, they were always on! I have changed nothing on my laptop! Before, I would get a good 2.5hours with everything on when the battery was fully charged!
    This happened ever since I installed VMWare Fusion! (VMWare is not running right now! Even without it, I am getting 1hr max!)
