Deep Sleep - Put new laptops into hibernation mode

PowerBooks have an internal battery which will maintain power for about five minutes, allowing batteries to be hot-swapped.

have the backup battery. All except the 12'' do. That's why you cannot replace a battery in a 12" without powering down, but you can in any other powerbook.
