    I'm noticing that my battery is discharging when it's shutdown. I was at 100% last night at about midnight. I just powered up, 10pm...22 hrs later and my battery is at 73%. WTF?

    Is this normal for macs?

    while it can happen, 25% is a bit crazy

    yeah most days it's only about 2% and there hasn't been even one day, in the week that I've owned it, that I haven't had some loss of battery power. Mostly it's in the 1-3% range.

    I'm going to be watching this more closely that's for sure.

    try just closing the lid, or putting it to sleep for a little while and see how far it goes down when you do that.

    are you for sure that it was completely turned off? It might have been asleep and you thought it was off?
