    Last night before I went to sleep my macbook pro unibody 2010 was at about 60% battery, so I closed my lid to go to put it asleep, left it on the coffee table, and went to sleep myself.

    Woke up this morning to a completely drained battery, and once I plugged it in the mac had to boot up fresh... not from hibernation.

    Now this is the first time this has happened, but I did make a change a week ago by cloning my drive and installing a Momentus XT 500GB. It came with sd23 firmware, and I read about many of the problems associated with it, so I almost immediately flashed it to sd24. I haven't had any problems with the drive so far, but don't know if this is a problem with the new drive, or if this may be a program, or some other anomaly.

    One troubleshooting check I just did was shut the lid to listen if the drive spun down, and it did.

    I have searched extensively through the forums, although I could have missed something.

    Help?

    If you have sleep turned off in the settings, that could do it. Another thing that could be happening is that your computer was running a disc scan/update in the background and this drained your battery.

    This is a sleep issue, not a battery issue.

    It's just as valid a battery issue because it's not normal for the battery to drain so fast.

    It's not abnormal if the MBP didn't stay asleep and was running all night.
