    My 17" intel core 2 duo Macbook Pro turns off without warning, it does not go to sleep mode it just turns off. This happens when it is unplugged and when the battery reaches 40% - 50%. This problem occurred after the 10.5.3 update and I thought by upgrading to 10.5.4 the problem would be fixed, but this sadly has not been the case.

    I have the latest firmware & software updates, i've done the PRAM and NVRAM reset and reset the SMC but with no avail.

    Help needed thank you :confused:

    Sounds to me like a bad battery. You'll want to get it swapped out if it is.

    I say battery fault because if it were a hardware/software fault you'd expect some sort of kernel panic behaviour. As it's just shutting off it's probably the battery.

    take it in, or call applecare. Doesn't seem like an issue that will be easy to remedy
