    I was looking for an additional batter for my powerbook and this question came up. Can you hot swap (put the computer to sleep i.e. close the lid) and change the battery. Can you do it for any apple portable ? esp 12" powerbook. And my friend owns an ibook (12") can it be done on his?

    Thanks for your help

    The 15" and 17" PowerBooks can be hot swapped. I don't know about the 12" but it could go either way. The iBooks do not support this feature at all.

    EDIT: 12" PowerBooks do not support hot swapping the battery, either.
