Today I got the warning at 10% and about a minute later, the computer just zapped off. I only had internet (Facebook and email) and iTunes open. This has happened before, more often recently, where it shuts off shortly after the warning. I've been wondering if I have a bad battery because sometimes the computer has drained all the way to 0% and then zaps off.


Is this fixable with the current battery? Or is it just old and likely needs replacement?


Any input is appreciated. Thanks!!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
