A few weeks ago, my macbook started shutting down abruptly whenever it was unplugged from the charger. The battery says it's fully charged, with full green indicator lights on the actual battery. The macbook will work fine as long as it stays plugged in.

I have heard all different things: power board; logic board; battery problems. Which is it? Hoping to get some insight without having to take it into the Genius Bar.

Here is my battery info:
