Serious software problems about the battery.
I am experiencing some hardships using my macbook pro.
First of all I need to mention that I have already downloaded coconut battery and it says my battery is doing a good job. (786 cycles, 76.4% of the design capacity, no errors)
Meanwhile, months ago the battery indicator started to tell me to service the battery. I did some calibration and reseted the SMC. Besides some other diagnostics, a service would only change my battery. But I don't want it to be changed only if necessary.
So the problem is the following:
1.Battery calibrated, fully charged.
2.Charging cable unplugged.
3.Using it, no problems occur. Let's say use it down to 60% of battery life having left.
4.If i turn it off, no problems occur either, BUT I just put it to sleep mode.
5.Few hours later I wake it up. Indicator says it has around 55% of battery life.
6.As I start to use it a few minutes after it turns completely off, and when I try to turn it on says I cant because the battery is empty.
7.I plug it in, few seconds right after I plugged in as I turn ON the indicator says it's got around 55% of battery.
I guess the battery itself if all right because if I don't put it to sleep, I have no problems at all using it for even 6 hours!
Please, if there is any other method resetting, calibrating the system, tell me, I am so much waiting for answers from more experienced girls and boys out there than me.
Is this a good question?
