Or maybe you just wasn't fast enough flipping the battery... I suspect
we don't power things down as efficiently than MacOS when going to sleep
(we just don't have the HW infos for some stuffs like the thermostat/fan
controllers and maybe a few others), thus we eat a bit more power when
in sleep mode. Also the amount of RAM is significant. That can affect
how long the machine survives without battery...
