    Hi guys, I would like to ask you two questions.
    First of all, is there a way to turn off my macbook pro when it goes to sleep because of the low battery?

    Second question: is there some sort of problems if I carry my MBP (or tip it over, ie to clean it) while sleeping? I'm afraid that something might go wrong with the HDD or sth else...


    Thank you in advance, Paolo.

    1. SmartSleep might help you there.

    2. Carrying the MBP while asleep does no harm to its components as only the RAM is powered during sleep. I never turn my Macs off, unless I'm not using them for more than some days.

    Try InsonmiaX. I use it when I want to close the lid on my computer, but not to use it in Clam Shell mode and when I want to keep it awake.

    But I don't want to disable the sleep mode... If I close the lid, it has to go to sleep... I just don't want it to go to sleep if the battery is low... Just turn off..

    If the battery is low, it will hibernate on its own.

    Isn't there any way to prevent it from happening? Just make it turn off...

    Yes there is. Before you close the lid. Click the Apple Icon in the top left corner. Then select "Shut Down". Wait for it to shut down... and then close the lid.

    If it just turns off, all open applications and documents are lost, Hibernating saves the contents of the RAM (open applications and documents) to the HDD and then powers off the Mac.
