    I'm assuming you've done all the software updates and have tried clicking on the battery icon itself to select the different view options right (ie, time, percentage, icon only)? If you've done this, then I back up Cybergypsy and say it's time to call Apple.

    I kinda remember reading this is what happens before it explodes... But yes, call Apple ASAP and back up quick before that sucker blows (not that it really would, but for added emphasis on the point).

    Was this a long term thing (as in you noticed it a few times in the past few weeks) or a short term thing (you saw it today and tried a restart, and shortly after you posted, it went away)? If it's short term, keep your eye out and if it happens again, take it in. If it's been happening, then take it in anyway. In fact, if it does happen again, take a screenshot so you can show the Genius. Sometimes this can help the Genius know what you mean.
