[iBook] Long Term iBook Storage

I just upgraded to a MacBook Pro from my iBook 900 (now over 7 years 
old). I want to keep my iBook since it still works just fine but it's 
gonna have to go into my storage shed. The battery is shot but 
otherwise it's still a functioning machine. It will join a Powerbook 
1400 (ca. 1997) in storage.

Is there any "best" or "preferred storage method?

FWIW, I have never had to "put down" a Mac/Apple machine in over 25 
years usage of Macs. They are still functioning when it's become time 
to upgrade and store the old machines. The only difference this time 
is that my faithful iBook will be indefinitely stored in a shed and 
subject to the Arizona desert's heat, albeit a dry heat.
