    I was calibrating my battery yesterday for the first time and according to apple's guide, the mbp is supposed to go to sleep by itself but after two warnings of low battery, the battery hit 0% and just shut off. Not sure if it went to deep sleep, standby or shut down (not sure, but there's no blinking light)

    Is it supposed to do that? I heard it happens to the newer macbooks (after 2008ish) but I'm not sure. My battery health is now 98% even though it's only a few days old.

    It personally doesn't bother me in terms of normal usage but I don't know if this "harms" my battery each time it drops to 0% instead of going to sleep. Should I just lose the lid before it hits 0% or something?

    TIA
