Ever since I upgraded my macOS to Catalina, I’ve noticed that MacBook Pro’s battery isn’t lasting as long as it used to. In fact in the couple of days that followed the Catalina upgrade, I found that the laptop had simply ran out of battery while it was in the sleep state. What I can’t work out though is whether this issue has been made worse by the macOS upgrade or not.

I’m not using my MacBook Pro as often as I used to do, but one of the problems I have is that when I am using it, it’s plugged into the adapter and sits like that for a few hours at a time. The laptop has already had a battery change and I know that it’s bad for the battery to have it plugged into the adapter all the time, but having it unplugged just leaves me with a couple of hours of battery.

It’s time like this I wonder if I should go back to a desktop.
