    I'm going to purchase a macbook pro at some point, probably when the new announcement happens, but my question is: while the laptop is in sleep mode, does the battery turn off? Like, does it still consume energy while in sleep mode?

    Probably a dumb question, but I know nothing about laptops.

    Never had a laptop before (currently using a imac g5 from 2006).

    Thanks in advance.

    It uses about 1% of battery power for every hour of sleep, give or take.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions: Apple Notebook Battery FAQ
