Make sure you have everything important backed up then try an Archive and Install from your Jag CD. You can then go back up to 10.2.6 using 10.2.6 combo

First thing, if you didn't repair permissions from the Disk Utility after updating, do so.

If you did the update through the Software Update utility, download the stand alone updater from Apple and install it.

These two things may work...if they apply to you.

I had the same thing happen to my iBook after an upgrade to 10.2. Not as severe as 5 minutes, but the battery within a month was worthless.

Sounds like your logic board is having problems charging your battery. Take your warranty and get it to a Service Repair Dealer - before you have to pay the $600 logic board replacement fee (if the logic board is bad).
