    So my MacBook seems to be loosing substantial battery power in sleep.

    I check Activity Monitor and everything seemed proper. What is the ATTServer running? Is there something I can check to see why my macbook is loosing battery while sleeping? Seems very odd, this never happened to my 1.33 g4 ibook before i sold it.

    Oh, and when i woke it from sleep today the keyboard did not work at all and I had to restart the machine to fix that problem. it happened after the macbook went to sleep bc all battery power was depleted, then it died (after 1 night sleep?) meaning when i plugged the magsafe in, the screen had to refresh from the previous day's screen before it went to sleep.

    Any experienced suggestions?

    Still here.
    A sleeping Mac does consume power. How much (%) power is lost during, say, a night's sleep?

    Cork, Ireland.
    Is it possible to manually invoke "safe sleep" mode, such that the memory contents are saved to disk and the machine shuts down? That would be the ideal solution, IMO.

    I think that the old PPC 'books could last something like 11 days on standby from a full charge, so um... you shouldn't have a problem there.
