    I attempted to calibrate my battery yesterday by following the apple instructions/instructions in the FAQ including plugging it in including extra 2 hrs, unplugging and draining it until it shut off and then waiting 5 hrs and plugging it back in. I have an OWC 240 gb SSD, and therefore I have gone into energy saver preferences and turned it all to "Never" due to the hibernate problem with the sandforce drivers. after waiting the 5 hrs and plugging it back in, i turned it on and the computer tried to load the sleepimage and got to about 50% and then just froze, so i was forced to power it off and turn it back on. Is there any other way around having to do this power off every time i calibrate?

    owc + hibernation issues is very well known. The work around you suggested is the only way

    You might try using Caffeine to override your energy saver preferences. You'll find a link to it in the CALIBRATION section of the following link. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
