    Hey Guys,

    I just got my 17'' i7 yesterday and after doing the usual setup I decided to calibrate the battery.

    I was using the laptop all day and late into the night so I changed energy saver settings to "Never Sleep" and "Never turn off monitor" Unchecked "Put hard-disks to sleep when possible" and went to bed.

    When I woke up the battery was at 2% and the low battery warning was showing.

    I clicked ok and started browsing the net. About 5 minutes after hitting 0% the macbook pro shut down instead of sleeping.

    I have read many threads on this using MRoogle but they never address if Energy Saver settings have anything to do with safesleep. So, is this a real problem and I should return it? Or did it happen because in Energy Saver I told it to never sleep (I would assume it's the former).

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm having the same exact problem, pretty much.

    Were you ever able to find a solution?

    My situation is here.

    Thanks.

    No, it's not a problem. If you leave it unplugged for 5+ hours, it should fully drain the battery. As it says in the calibration steps:
