Isn't this a very old feature of PBs?
Authored by: bolah1313 on Nov 18, '05 07:59:14AM

I may be mistaken but I could have sworn all of the PowerBooks, which all have backup batteries, will automatically sleep the computer when the main battery is depleted allowing you up to four minutes to change it. In fact when I got the original G4 PowerBook (Ti Book) I used to show off to all my PC friends that I can remove the battery and still retain all my windows. How is the safe sleep different.

The answer is that in "safe sleep", the content of the RAM gets written to the harddrive. This way, you can remove any power source for years and the Mac will still wake up as you closed it. ;-)

I think another answer to that is that only 15 and 17in PB had that feature. My 12in didn't.

All these moments will be lost in time
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.
