How do you do that? Do you boot it up into the BIOS or something and let it just drain? I have a feeling that Mac OS would hate getting shut down at the login prompt or something (filesystem inconsistencies, etc.).
That's the manual for iBook & Powerbook: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86284
They don't seem to worry about filesystem inconsistencies.
Newer iBook & Powerbook models (and of course every intel-based laptop) uses in addition "safe sleep" which is afaik a combination of suspend-to-ram and suspend-to-disk. When safe sleep is activated Mac OS X will write the RAM to disc, if there wasn't a power down it'll wake up from RAM, if there was one it'll wake up from disc.
