My iBook came back...

I got my laptop back today from Apple Repair. I loathe getting a repaired laptop back from them now. It never goes right. Anyway... They fixed the laptop assembly battery (CMOS battery), but the laptop still dies when you unplug it from the power adaptor. It will not start up again unless it is plugged back in to the power adaptor. After startup it is now holding the date and time correctly, and remembering my network settings. BUT... It's still shutting off after you unplug it from the power adaptor. So, my assumption is that said laptop has an issue with the battery, and or charging board. The reason the laptop lasts as long as it does when you unplug it from power is that the new CMOS battery is trying to keep it up and running. This is why the CMOS battery was drained completely in the first place. Now on the phone with Apple Repair again. Wondering why they did not check to see if replacing the CMOS / laptop assembly battery fixed the issue.
