    I was wondering how long can the new 15" MBP sleep before its batteries die out? Would it be more than 24hrs?

    Thanks!

    Wow, that seems to be impressive, thats over 100hrs of sleeping. But its for your MB... I am guessing MBP will be drastically shorter.

    i would suggest downloading a widget (apple site) called "deep sleep" it saves RAM into harddrive and completely shuts down the computer, it uses zero power. to turn back on u simply hit the power button and wait 20-40 secs (depending on how big ur ram size is) and your back where u left it. i do this over night when i dont want the battery to decrease at all, as it sometimes looses 10%!

    So the "Deep Sleep" widget is something like "Hibernate" in Windows?
