30 min. ago I turned off my MBP with battery 98% charged. Went to work, turned it on and now it's 2% and charging. WTF happened? Anyone experienced the same? :confused:

Still the Console might help finding out what happened in that time, though I am a bit perplexed to be honest.
Just checked it, there are no messages between SHUTDOWN_TIME and BOOT_TIME. Don't know what else to look for, I'm not an expert in this.

What you can do now is unplug the battery and to a SMC reset. Sometimes, the SMC goes wild and drains the battery while the computer is shut down. If this doesn't work, time to invoke AppleCare.

Thanks for the hint, that's a possible option.

Battery is fully charged now. Btw, iStat Pro says battery health is 98% (63 cycles). Everything seems ok for the moment, maybe I'll do some tests later.
