Take it back, as it is clearly defective.

Check your Energy Saver System Preferences and set the hard drive to sleep for the Battery.

Also if you got a 7,200 RPM drive somehow, it will shorten the battery life.


Charge it up, turn off sleep and screen saver (or blank screen) and see how long it lasts without doing anything.

sorry, not true...re: your assertion that a 7,200 rpm drive will shorten battery life....

I'd post some links for you, but googling will pull up far too many.


my own MBP 13" 2.66 (just purchased a couple of weeks ago) gets ridiculous battery life in the same conditions you are talking about. My PC-owning laptop friends are more than jealous.

wish I could help more.
