    When I put my computer in sleep mode it has 99%. The next day when I come back it has 91%. What's wrong?

    Also sometimes it only charges to 99 percent when left plug.
    When left plug when its fully charged the green light turn greyish green or just completely turn grey.
    What's going on?

    It is normal to have the % a little lower than 100. If mine reaches 97%, I unplug it for a few minutes, then it charges back up to 100%.

    Don't be worried, you're fine.

    Batteries are weird beasts, OP, sounds pretty normal to me.

    Artek - I'm not 100% sure on the MBP, but you should be expecting at the very least 3 hours, depending on what you're doing...If I'm doing light work, I expect like 3-5 hours on my Macbook.

    Ive noticed that the MBP loses about 1% per hour while it is sleeping. I believe it is normal.
