    So I just got my macbook pro yesterday 2.8ghz. quick question. I just read up on the battery calibration process on apples website. seems straight forward. just one question. after i let the battery drain and let it go into sleep mode, then wait 5+ hours, then charge it to full. can i use the computer when i start charging it to full? or does it have to be off while im charging it to 100%? thanks :)

    Yes, you can use it while it charges.

    Also MRoogle is a good tool to search these forums, and it would have answered your question.

    Actually, in this case you're wrong. As the OP said, apple's calibration info does not specify whether you should or shouldn't use your MB during the last stage of calibration. I was looking for clarification on Mroogle recently and couldn't find any.

    Nice find spinnerlys, it's weird that although they've specified this point in mac help they didn't bother on the apple website http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1490

    Anyway, all clear now. Cheers

    I agree, not even in the MBP Help Guides, that come with the MBPs or are downloadable on support.apple.com, is it mentioned.

    But I can remember, that I have seen it written down somewhere besides the Help menu.
