Of course then there's the laptop angle.
My old POS laptop has about 3 minutes of battery life left.  One day I either need a new laptop or to pony up a thousand for a shiny new model.
Anyways--I usually hit shutdown, unplug everything and throw it in my bag.

It would definitely run out of juice before the check was done on my 120 GB drive.
