Worked like a charm on my 2008 unibody MBP. Thanks!

I still use it and I have a backup just in case. However my question is, this seems like a compatible replacement. Would you suggest it? internet faxing

I have an aluminum Macbook and have tried this a couple times with no luck. Is there some option that needs to be set in System Preferences that I have missed or something? Or does this just apply to Macbook Pros?

does this mean that i have to have another battery as a spare for when this happens?

Isn't easier to use the cord? I just ask because then you would have to buy multiple batteries, and then lug them around with you and then recharge them anyway when they die... I'm a noobie so maybe I'm missing something.

Didn't know about this. Thought I had to keep hooked up to the power supply. It's helpful to know this when I am traveling. One less cord to have to use. Thanks.

TiBooks had hot-swappable batteries, no Safe Sleep involved. Safe sleep was introduced either on the final Aluminum PowerBooks, or on early MacBooks/MacBook Pros, I'm not sure which. But TiBooks, if you are fast enough, don't do the Safe Sleep and wake up quickly from a normal sleep. If you are too slow, then TiBooks loose power.

I know that my 1 GHz TiBook has this feature. Most PowerBook G4's do [I'm pretty sure all of the aluminum PowerBook G4's do]. iBooks do not support this feature.
