    i followed apple's instructions and let my mbp go to sleep after the battery dies. However, its been sleeping for 4 hours so far and the sleep indicator is still 'breathing'...Will it shut down?

    It should. Sometimes it takes a while longer. Try waking it up to see if there's enough juice to make it come alive.

    I'm pretty sure it takes about 5 hours for it to completely drain. Look at the bright side, the longer it last the better your battery is! :D

    also, can I use my computer when I charge it back up to full after being asleep/dead for 5 hours?

    Yup ... just plug it in ... turn it on ... and enjoy while it's charging the battery.
