    1. After the battery runs out and it shuts itself down (for lack of better term), close the lid, walk away, return 5 hours later.

    OR

    2. After the battery runs out and it shuts down... hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds.

    hibernate/sleep, same thing. it will automatically shut down anyway. Just follow the instructions on the apple site.

    the site says it automatically goes to sleep and has a backup battery to keep it in sleep , and when that backup finishes it will automatically hibernate(shut down after it writes the ram on the HDD). just do as the site says :)

    You can use Caffeine to keep it awake until it shuts down. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions: Apple Notebook Battery FAQ

    When this happens, close the lid and walk away for 5 hours or longer. By that time, the battery should be fully discharged and ready to recharge to complete the calibration.
