    Hi y'all, just had a question about low battery and shutting down. When the warning comes up around 5-6% it warns that you need to plug int he AC adapter or it will go to sleep to save memory contents. It used to go to sleep at 2%, but now it drains all the way to 0%, makes a funny noise and then shuts down. Is there anyway i can turn some kind of option back on to make it go to sleep when low? When i turned it back on, my keyboard wasn't working either... i just hit num lock a few times and it worked.. Any ideas anyone?

    I read around on websites as well. I'm pretty sure there's nothing in the background running. I just installed a new software update, but i doubt that has anything to do with it as well. I tried resetting the pmu as well. So if anyone has any ideas on how to get safe sleep to work, any input is appreciated... :)

    Sorry to post so many times, but does anyone know if it might have something to do with charge as well? On iStat i have 96% battery health, so if it safe sleeps at 2%, could it just be off and that's why it's not doing it? Any ideas on this Safe Sleep not working?

    Don't know how to help you, I usually plug the power in, but you might want to try this... Calibrating the battery.
