I have a MacBook Model A1278. After a replacement of the battery in a moment of low charge (like 5-7%) the laptop is abruptly shutting down. As far as I remember it should be like a "sleep mode" or something like that.
Additionally, in a process of normal shutting down that I do by myself with any percent of charge, I hear some clicking sounds from the HDD that means that the HDD was turned off incorrectly (in a moment when read head doesn't stop in a parking zone).
For the first try of repair I did reset of PRAM and SMC but it doesn't help. As a result, either PRAM or SMC didn't reset (how I can check it?) or there is something else. Any suggestions?
UPDATE: Thank you everyone for attention! So here is more information:
- I Have A1278 Mid-2012 model.
- I've using macOS 10.12.2
- After the command
syslog | grep shutdownI've got the result in only one line
NOTE: Most system logs have moved to a new logging system. See log(1) for more information.
- I'm trying to fix the abrupt shutdown. There should be a something like sleep/hibernation mode when the battery charge is lower 5% instead
- I've tried to calibrate battery with no luck
