MacBook Pro (MacBookPro5,3) not sleeping but shutting down when battery gets low

I've got a MacBook Pro (revision 5,3) which was produced in the middle of 2009 and has 49 charge cycles. When it was all new, it showed a battery capacity of around 6500 mAh.

I think those instructions from Apple might need to be revised. The time between "forced into sleep mode" and "battery is truly exhausted" is practically nonexistent, and my MacBook also goes into disk sleep 10 minutes after that 10 minute warning. Having said that, I think this is correct behaviour and you're not encountering any hardware issue here.
