Did you try to reset the PRAM and the SMC?
I got this computer 5 days ago, is that already necessary?
Not necessarily. Was it a return?
No, it is brand new. Got it at Best Buy Sunday. I also have an uneven screen temperature which makes reading things with white background a bit annoying. I think I'm going to go back and exchange it tomorrow.
Wow. Sounds like you got a dud. That's definitely something I would do an exchange for.
What battery app is that? Could be its algorithms are off?? (doesn't look like the display I get on Mavericks).
As the machine is new is Spotlight running? You should check what cpu usage is on the activity monitor, if an app is using cpu, its using energy and that will help you tell if the battery drain is "real" or not.
That's iStat Menus 5.
I wonder if it does its own "remaining" calc or just takes OSX's??
Edit - I just installed and iStat, Battery Guard and Mavericks all agree on the remaining figure on my MBP
Try calibrating the battery, failing that then take it back.
PRAM/NVRAM has nothing to do with battery/power/charging issues, so resetting it will not help. Only SMC affects such issues.
The battery apps pull information from OS X.
Interesting. Didn't know that. Thanks.
