My Mini9 came with BIOS A04 and I haven't had any problems with sleep or battery (except 10.5.8 which I've fixed).

I did disable Safe Sleep by setting hibernatemode to 0. If I upgraded BIOS to A05 would I be able to turn on Safe Sleep by setting hibernatemode back to 3?

So I just got my 77wh dell battery for my mini 9 from this ebay auction 77WH Battery Dell Mini 9 Inspiron 910 8.9 W953G laptop - eBay (item 370235848722 end time Aug-23-09 22:46:39 PDT)
and now when I put it in I get blinking battery LED and upon bootup saying battery cannot be recognized and cannot charge. I am running Dell Bios A05. I understand the best option for me is to downgrade to A04 to fix this problem or is there another way? I am currently running Mac OS X 10.5.8 , so how would I go about doing this?

Sorry for all these questions, I couldnt find the answer by searching.
