    I'm Just back from NYC (iPhone is AMAZING!!)
    Anyway, I'm just back from NY and got to my macbook and pushed the power button (AC Adaptor plugged in). It starts up normally, but, the power adaptor light takes about 5 secs to turn on instead of immediate reaction. Oh, and the light doesn't turn orange it stays green all the time, battery icon looks like the images. I've tried restart, battery out and put back in... I haven't got the installation disks with me at the moment... What do you suggest?????:(

    ..so is the battery working? Or does it only work when the power cable is plugged in?

    It only works when the power cord's plugged in, and the light is always green.


    I've tried that, doesn't work:(!!

    Looks like the battery is dead or at least its not being recognized by the MacBook. If warranty or Apple Care, you should get a replacement.

    Was your MacBook still under the limited 1-year guarantee? If not did they do it for free??

    I have the same problem and it just started last week. I used it on 8/24 with the battery and then didn't use it until earlier last week. That's when I got the X in the battery bar and the computer shuts down whenever I unplug it. Tried the reset mentioned earlier and that didn't help so I think I'm SOL. It's out of warranty and I didn't get AppleCare as I never needed it with my TiBook from 2002 that's still running great.

    Just found this:

    http://www.apple.com/support/macbook_macbookpro/batteryupdate/

    Biggest thing mentioned:

    For MacBook and MacBook Pro systems with Intel Core Duo processors, this program extends repair coverage on the battery for up to two years from the date of purchase of the computer.

    Sounds good to me.
