I have an older macbook pro (purchased 2006).  Works just fine except it seems to be draining the battery rapidly.  I thought maybe it was due to an old battery so I got a new one but the new one is doing the exact same thing.  And when the battery gets down to 12%, the computer shuts off.  The old battery didn't shut off but went to sleep at 0% left.  I've tried resetting the SMC but no improvement.  Any other thoughts or suggestions?  While I certainly would love a new computer, it's not financially possible at this time so trying to make this thing last as long as I can while I save up.
