    I have a 2010 macbook pro and I want to calibrate my battery (I'm getting around 5.5 hours with just the Intel). On the battery calibration FAQ, it says I can use the computer while its on AC power and while its on battery power. So now I'm at the step when I'm on battery power. Can my usage habits influence the calibration? Also, can I use the Nvidia (with gfxcardstatus) and not negatively affect the calibration?

    You can do whatever you want to kill the battery down to 0%. I find that kicking up the processors in Terminal does the trick quickly.

    Oh, and I had accidentally let my computer go to sleep for a couple minutes by shutting the lid. Is that a problem too? (Sorry if I'm being overly paranoid about this, the Calibration FAQ didn't mention anything about it)

    I don't remember the command, but I'm guessing you killed the battery by now.

    Perfectly fine.
