I added "onBattery_SuspendTime = 0" in /etc/pbbuttonsd.conf and than
worked until I got the warning, that only 2 minutes are left -- than I
plugged in the power connector and charged it.
Also I did it on a machine of someone with MacOSX installed to do the
procedure Apple describes on its website.
But I have to say, as it was my only machine, I used it with this
battery for over 2 1/2 years extensively (some weeks it was running 24
hours a day). The touchpad, DVD drive and hard-disk are already replaced
and currently my screen is flackering :-/
