    Hopefully, you bought the battery from Apple. If you bought a knockoff battery, all bets are off. Try resetting the SMC.

    For sleep issues, you may find some useful ideas here:

    Wait. I just re-read your original post. Are you saying you're trying to install a battery from a 2011 MBP into a 2009 MBP? If so, that's not a good idea. Buy a battery that was designed for your MBP.

    I think you might have accidentally disconnected the Sleep sensor/Battery indicator. The battery will certainly not cause any sleep issues. Apple uses the same battery for all 13'' cMBP Unibodies 2009-2012.

    The sleep sensor is right next to the battery connector, make sure it is seated correctly.

    Yes its a 2011 battery on a 2009 macbook pro. I read online and it recommended this model on the battery?

    You do mean SMC reset, not PRAM, right? PRAM/NVRAM has nothing to do with battery/power/charging issues. Resetting it will not help. Only resetting the SMC addresses such issues.
