Brand new MacBook Pro 17, bought May 2011. Already made one trip to Apple Genius Bar and they tested everything and found no problem. They reset the SMC (?). I'm basically waiting for the problem to get bad enough that it is constant and can't be ignored. Oh, Joy. My battery constantly says "(NOT CHARGING)" And the % will decrease down. This week it floated in the 80%s, never getting higher. If I shutdown the OS and unplug for a minute, plug back in and startup it will usually start charging again. However, when I aggressively use the DVD it drains the battery. All of a sudden last night the whole unit powered off. I botoed back up, it said the clock was not set, asked a bunch of firewall questions than blacked out. My assumption was the battery was 0%, but I couldn't keep it running long enough to see a %. I unplugged the unit, waited a minute than plugged it in and left it powered off overnight. It was charged again, but is currently at 89% and (not charging). I'm ripping some of my DVDs to watch on the road and this seems to drain the battery--even though I'm plugged in. The power cord is green. I'm wondering if anybody else is experiencing this with the new MacBook Pros? I figured I'll try the calibration procedure again.
