iBook G4 battery issues?

I bought my iBook last October. I use the battery quite a bit.

I have it unplugged right now, and thanks to a nifty dashboard widget, it came to my attention that although I have 76% battery charge remaining, I only have 1:57 remaining.

I used to get 5-6 hours on the battery...? Will I need to replace this puppy soon?

So the battery isn't even a year old. Nope, it shouldn't be so low so quickly, but it is possible. Drain the battery completely by leaving your iBook unplugged and wait until it shuts itself off when the battery goes completely dead. Then, plug the iBook in, and hit Shift+Control+Option & and the Power Button (be sure not to hit the fn key in the process). Wait 5 seconds - then hit the power button again to turn the unit on. Let it charge up fully to 100% and then see if you have your hours back if you unplug it.
