My MBP is plugged in to charge and what not, I'm using it right now, but it's only at 95%, yet, the charger's LED is green and when I run Coconutbattery, it says the battery isn't charging. I've tried plugging it in again and such, but it's not changing, the LED stays green. What should I do?

When the battery reaches 94-100 percent, it will stop charging. This is to prevent over charging.


Example

You fully charged the MacBook Pro to 100 percent. You unplug it for a few minutes, it is now 95 percent. You plug it in. It will not charge to prevent overcharging, you need to get it below 94.
