SmartSleep

Version: 3.20 || Release Date: 2012-08-11 || License: Freeware Developer: Patrick Stein | App Owner: limi

SmartSleep lets your notebook sleep while the battery has a high level. If the battery level drops below a certain point ( default is less then 20% or 20 minutes ) it will switch to sleep and hibernate. So you have the best of both worlds.

Excellent :-)

This is also good for manually switching between sleep and hibernate mode. I let my MacBook sleep by default when I close the lid. If I'm taking it with me somewhere and will not use it for an hour or more, I switch to hibernation mode so that I preserve my battery charge longer. That way, I don't need to bring my charger with me as often.

This is not as needed as before (my old macbook churned like crazy on sleep/hibernate), but I always install this.
