Hi, I'm not new on mac, in fact I've been using mac since '85, 21 years (wow time goes fast), I post here because I'm having trouble with my 12" 867Mhz Superdrive PowerBook G4, The battery is pissing me off, It says it's full and when it's on 95% it goes to sleep, I connect the power adaptor and it says battery is 0% and starts charging, it never says XX time to go, is always calculatieng and when it's in 5% it turns the green led on and says Battery Fully Charged. I don't know what's happening, I did the ctrl+option+shift+power 5 seconds, and it resets the date( so it works) but no change in battery.

Does anyone know how to fix it.

Thanks

Sorry about my english

You might be entitled to a new batter under the recent battery recall. I have the exact same machine and got a replacement battery.
