    I recently came back from a trip (5 weeks), and I had left my Macbook (fully charged) at home. So when I got back, the battery had gone down to 75%, does anybody know why or if there is something wrong?

    No. Batteries lose charge over time. This is completely normal. That's why Apple quotes a 30 day standby time for MacBook Airs. The machines are turned off and drawing no power but Apple doesn't expect them to last more than a month in that state. 75% is not bad.

    1% a day in normal for some batteries. You are good.
