Normally you should also be able to set up so that the
laptop goes automatically to sleep when running out of
power. With this setting, the only way to actually kill the
computer is to let the battery run out, then let the laptop
alone for a couple of months until the battery runs so low
even "hibernate" dies (it does eventually, on my T420).
