My problem is similar to this thread: MacBook Air won’t power on, except I remove the battery and plug it back in (SMC reset?) – sleep works

The Mac won’t turn on unless I unplug and replug the battery after holding down the power button for a few seconds. After that, I need to connect the charger and power on the Mac. This always happens if I shut it down.

My workaround as of the moment is just to make the Mac sleep but sometimes it would just drain the battery. It’s annoying. Has this problem been solved for others? I have tried every key combination and reset, etc.
