I'm kind of freaking out, my macbook pro is for school and I need to have long battery life. I have had my macbook for two days and just calibrated the battery last night. Now my battery says it will only last 1:35. Not good! Anybody have any ideas?
I have this, although it doesn't say anything, I took a bunch of screenshots, I hope they help solve the problem, thanks!
Good work with all the screenshots.I have this, although it doesn't say anything, I took a bunch of screenshots, I hope they help solve the problem, thanks!
I'm not doing anything intensive, just websurfing. I'll wait it out to see if its lying to me, thanks for your helpWhat exactly are you doing while you're on the battery, 'cause I get about 3 or 4 on my 2.4 depending on what I'm doing. Just let it sit there running on battery, 'cause sometimes it'll lie to you. If you really get 1:35 and the MBP is relatively new and you're not doing anything intensive (lot's of open programs, connected peripherals) you should be getting it to say at least two, maybe two and a half.
Thanks for all of your help, once I restarted the computer, the estimated time remaining is more reasonable, 3 hours. Got screenshots.It still looks like Camino is hitting one core at 100%.
Can you open up Activity Monitor (/Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor) and see what's using your processor?
