    Hi All,

    Just got a new macbook pro 13" last night, and got it upgraded to 8gb of ram.

    I decided to do a memtest on it this morning, and honestly didn't even think to plug it in to the wall. The test got through the first test, and made it through most of the second test and the battery died before it could finish.

    Would that of caused any harm to the computer or the ram? I was in single user mode at the time, so I'm just hoping that no damage was caused.

    Thanks all for any advice!

    Absolutely none at all, so long as you hadn't run "mount -uw /", and even then, the chances are virtually nonexistent that this would have caused any problems with anything.

    You won't damage your Mac by running the battery down. In fact, completely draining the battery is part of the calibration process that Apple recommends. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
