    Couple Questions regarding my macbook's battery:

    1) When I callibrate my battery can I fully charge the battery, run it dead into the sleep mode, then shut it off and charge it or do I really have to leave it in that sleep mode for 5 hours??

    2) Also, if my macbook is in sleep mode and I choose to charge it, will the LED indicator on the charger not turn green? I was charging it last night and it wouldn't change green. Three hours went by and I thought that it was ridiculous. I opened it up to see it at 99% and then I unplugged it and it went to 100%???? Why didn't the LED indicator change color? Also is that normal for it to charge to 99% and then only go to 100% when unplugged?

    1- i don't think you have to let it sleep or off during 5 hours each time
    2- i believe the light didn't turn green because the laptop was asleep and didn't update the charging light, when you waked it up , it updated it and turned green :D

    I know that I mean when I calibrate the battery. You must not know what that means. :p

    apple's website does state that you should let it sleep for five hours, so i would do that.
