    I know this is probably already answered somewhere, but I have spent 30 mins looking for it with no success!!!

    I have a late 2007 2.2GHz MacBook Pro that for the longest after depleting the battery would turn right back on after being plugged in, but I would lose all my work. Since upgrading to Snow Leopard when it was first released I've noticed a new feature, "Hibernation" where the mac will back itself up before completely depleting the battery. The catch comes when you plug it back in, I now have to wait 15-30 mins before it will come back on after plugging it in! This is completely unacceptable for me!

    I want to know how to disable this!!!

    Please tell me there is a way to turn on the MBP without having the battery reach the second light, I know I used to be able to!

    I read somewhere that they have "throttled" it down for running without the battery, but I also hear you can't do that unless the laptop is on in the first place.

    Thanks,

    Jake

    Maybe SmartSleep can help, although Terminal can do that too.

    How often do you deplete the battery?
