Deep Sleep - Put new laptops into hibernation mode
Authored by: mlsmithjr on Oct 18, '06 11:45:32AM

With the machine in sleep mode, and the battery removed, what's keeping the machine from being powerless?

Deep Sleep - Put new laptops into hibernation mode
Authored by: hamarkus on Oct 18, '06 04:49:06PM

A small back-up battery, maybe in the form of a condensator.

To clarify, with Powerbooks (back at least to the Pismo) and MacBooks Pro (MacBook Pros ?) when you put them to sleep, you have maybe one minute to change the battery. The maschine will not lose power, it will not go into deep sleep. When you open it up again, it just wakes from sleep normally.

Wallstreet & Pismo

The Wallstreet, and if i recall correctly the Pismo too, have dual battery bays (the CD drive bay is also a battery bay). Even so, it is true that the PRAM battery can power main RAM for short periods of time, if all main batteries are removed.
