OK, so I got a MB Core Duo with a battery that has been nothing but trouble since I got the thing. I have reset the SMC on the thing a good 10x and in the past it has seemed to help. However, the battery still has acted weird (it dies within 2 days of being in sleep mode). I could have sworn that my powerbooks and ibooks lasted around 5 days in sleep mode...
Anyway, besides that issue, I can't seem to get the battery to hold a charge anymore. Does anyone know of any diagnostics that I can run on the lap to test the batt integrity?
At this point I think I am just going to have to replace the battery itself. My guess is I just got a lemon battery, but I haven't really been able to test other MacBooks extensively to determine if this is a widespread issue or just my luck.
