    i am going away on vacation for two and a half weeks and am not sure what to do about my powerbook. do i need to remove the battery and store it, or is it safe to leave it in? if so, should i completey shut the computer down or can i leave it in sleep mode?

    Drain the battery down to 40%. You will be better off if you shut down the pbook.

    From what I can tell according to Apple's site. 2 1/2 weeks isn't too long to keep it in your notebook.
    Edit: You probably should turn it off though.

    i've left batteries in powerbooks for months at a time. no harm done.

    tho i'd be too addicted to leave my 'book at home :)
