MBP 17 i5: Battery calibration. My MBP will shut off, rather than going into sleep

    I just bought MBP 17 i5 model a couple days ago from a local apple store(Keystone Mall). and I calibrated my battery yesterday.

    The thing is I know MBP should sleep when the battery is really low(running off reserve) then when the battery drains out, MBP should do the "safesleep" thing where it stores the current state of the machine so that upon turning the machine back on by supplying the power to it or after charging, MBP returns to the stored state.

    But, when i was calibrating my battery, I did get the low battery warning(reserve battery blah blah) but then it drained down to 0 then the screen flickered(literally made a flicking sound) and went dead.

    When I got up in the morning I plug the adapter on and turned the MBP on and MBP just freshly boots.. rather than restoring the previous state...

    I am guessing safesleep isn't working for some reason.

    Anyone with same problem? I am thinking about returning my mbp for this reason and do you think they will charge me the restocking fee?

    This is what my system.log shows by the way:

    same thing here, shut down at 2% remaining.
    I don't like that... should at least go to sleep!

    To see if your computer can actually hibernate at all you can try this free widget:


    I tested out my machine and it indeed did the hibernation thing so I'm thinking calibration is the issue. Report back in a day or so.
