Well I can tell you it's NOT a dead battery.

I have the exact same problem with my old Macbook Core Duo.

I have several old batteries and a couple of new ones, and all cause the same behavior.

1) All batteries will charge

2) Adapter LED goes from orange to green, and the batteries peak at 97-100%

3) Macbook will only turn on when plugged in.

4) If not plugged in to AC, Macbook will spin up the drive, no chime, then spin down.

Of what I can find online, it's either something wrong with the battery connector circuitry, although everything, even coconut battery utility, says everything is within normal limits.  Or it's the logic board.
