Yeah, I got that part, but is that a fake image or a menubar glitch I'm unaware of?
No. Real image. For some reason it just takes a minute for the battery meter on my iBook to calibrate correctly or something. Soon after it said 2:50.

My MBP does that...the biggest it ever said was something along the lines of 23665:24456. Its either a glitch or a calculation of how long the battery would last while in sleep mode, cause I notice the number is bigger the more "actual" battery I have.

Ah, you could be right about that :). It does seem fitting; in sleep mode the battery would probably last that long, and the battery calculator in the computer is reading the power output of the battery while in sleep mode, and giving you a large figure along those lines. Then, it realises that the power intake is heaps more, and decreases it to a more realistic number, which it has calculated.

oh duh. That makes a lot of sense. How did I not think of that! :rolleyes:
