No, lithium polymer batteries do not work that way, it's an outmoded idea from the days of Ni-Cad cells which are completely different... I would suggest an overnight charge from a wall charger or a PC that will definitely not go into sleep/hibernate mode if left unattended... when the red light goes out then battery is at 80% charge so it doesn't hurt to leave charging and it can't overcharge due to circuitry designed to stop that happening...
