MacBook Pro Battery Indicator Problems

The battery icon in the menubar of my MacBook Pro was showing a black "X" instead of the time remaining. It looks like it also prevented the battery from being charged correctly. I found this article on how to reset the System Management Controller (SMC) that fixed the problem.

Comments:

You may want to watch it closely. Mine did that and then it quit charging all together. I called Apple and they replaced the battery, luckly I had Apple Care... Currently on my third battery for my MBP.
