Battery on Ibook

Message #1 - Posted 2003/06/29 - polyad

My IBook is just about one-year old. I don't use it as my main computing source. I've probably used it fewer than 10 hours since I've had it. Since the day I bought it the battery life has been in question. After a full charge I never seemed to get more than two hourts of use. I don't have any periferrals other than a zip drive. In the past year the battery life seemed to get weaker and weaker. Finally, the battery will hold no charge at all now. I have to use the adapter or can't use this machine at all. Apple techs told me to reset the Power Manager and I did with no change. They will probably replace the battery. Anyone else with similar problem?

Hold Option-Command-O-P at restart or power on.

That should be Option-Command-O-F

O.F. as in open Firmware.
