    I'm a little confused on the wording. So I can either turn the computer off by holding the power button or I can let the computer sleep for 5 hours?

    Also one last question. Hibernation is for when the battery is going to die right? So even when the battery dies and the ram wipes you still have a "bookmark" of where you left off?

    Thanks for your help fellas.

    Whether you power it off or let it sleep, let it do so for at least 5 hours.
    Even though the terminology may be different, your understanding of the concept is correct.

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

    Apple's steps are a little misleading (the laptop turns itself off). Once the laptop shuts down from lack of power, let it alone for 5 or more hours, then plug the charger in and let it fully recharge.

    Also, you're correct about hibernation.
