    1 hr today then i noticed it didnt have the white light blinking. Once i opened it nothing happened so i tapped the pwr button. It then started loading up like if my battery died and just charged it.

    ohh i forgot to add, is this normal? or anyone experience this as well? It was a bit glitchy when i tapped the pwr button so i closed it and opened it agian then it started working normal.

    When you hit the power button, did it start from the safe-sleep screen (gray progress bar, with desktop washed out)? If so, then it sounds like either the battery went dead or somehow was disconnected (perhaps a bad connection in the battery bay). I think that's what you're describing.

    yeah thats what i got the gray loading screen. The battery was at like 30% so im not sure how it could have died. this is the first time it's happened

    The only thing I can think of, off hand, is to re-calibrate the battery and see how it goes. If you are getting short run times, you could have a bad battery. (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1490)
