    Ok, in step 5, it says:

    "Turn off the computer or allow it to sleep for five hours or more."

    Does this mean i can turn it off, then immediately turn it on and proceed to step 6, or that i have to let it sit for 5 hours regardless?

    Thanks everyone

    It should be interpreted as: "Turn off the computer for five hours or more or allow it to sleep for five hours or more."

    When it gives you the 1 minute warning it will 'Force Sleep' it is during this sleep that the reserve Li-Ion is being consumed. 5 hours of this sleep and the pulsating light will finally shut-off. You know now that the battery is prime for calibration.
