    I've got one of the early MBPs (already did the battery replacement "recall")

    anyways recently it seems that no matter how long I leave it on the charger of (even all day) I come back and it still says its is 30-45 minutes away from being charged. it indicated ~95% charge. This happens about 2-3 times a week. When I pick the computer up and look at the battery underneath of it 4 of the green lights indicating charge are on and the 5th is flashing even without me having hit the button to light up the indicator.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.
