    Sounds like a prob I had on an early PB Ti. Looks like your battery is
    falling out, and the thing's cutting out.

    It's only about a year old. It's a second generation Ti.

    Well, the battery is not literally falling out, if that's what you mean.
    I looked at the connections there and they are quite hefty. Or maybe
    that's an illusion. Maybe one of the pins is not connecting properly.

    On the first generation Ti, twisting the frame causes the battery to
    be disconnected and shuts down the computer. The battery doesn't have to
    fall out for this to happen. Your description of the problem sounds very
    much like the old problem. If it's the same problem, you can try getting
    the battery to sit tighter using some electrical tape or heat-shrink
    tubing:

    Good luck.
