    Funny thing happened today while I took out my MBP and tapped it to the charger. The battery indicator shows one dot not being light up while my MBP was fully charged while the computer was turned off by the way. So I was wondering if over time, like say a week or two that even though your MBP is turned off can it still discharge at a slow rate.

    yes it can, that happens to all batteries. It's probably a good idea to use it more often than every two weeks in order to keep the battery functioning properly.

    How much? 1-5% is normal. Anything more than 10% would worry me however.
