    Does anyone know about the Snow Leopard battery fault which is causing a 'service battery' fault on a lot of Mac Book pros? There's a whole thread here on

    I guess Apple are ignoring this problem because there are over a thousand posts on this thread and nothing has been done in any of the updates in Snow Leopard. It makes me sick. And it also makes me sick that people are expected to buy a new battery with no guarantee that it won't happen again.

    Apple, you make great computers, but come on, sort this out. It's ridiculous.

    This is a feature--not a bug. Snow Leopard adds the ability for the OS to tell you what the battery already knows. There are a lot of older-style batteries failing, but it has nothing to do with Snow Leopard. The only relation with Snow Leopard is that now you know your battery is having issues, whereas before Snow Leopard, you didn't.

    Reminder: Batteries are consumables. They fail.
