I have successfully made numerous timed recordings using Audacity on my MacBook Pro. However, yesterday was the first time I attempted a recording without having the external power adapter attached to the MacBook Pro.
The MacBook had more than 50% power when I set it up to record. However the recording failed to start. Does anyone know what I should do so that the recording starts under these conditions?

Doesn’t count. The battery counter in a Mac is notoriously inaccurate. Some of the Mac System tasks will flat out refuse to run on batteries, instead requiring shore power. There could be something wrong, but I’m not surprised it does that.
The MBP probably went to sleep waiting more than an hour to start. However, with the power adapter attached, I never had it fail to start after a long wait. Maybe Koz is right and the battery died during the wait.
