    Soooo....this is kinda weird...
    I have an ibook, i close it, it goes to sleep, i can open it up a week later and the battery is okay. my roommate has a macbook, same thing...

    now i got a new macbook at work, and unless i shut it down, the battery is dead within a day or 2...ideas how to fix??

    Why not shut it down if you're not using it for a day or two? :dunno:

    That's odd. Try taking it into Apple.
