When I use the PowerManagement.bundle in the first post, it actually deletes my pre-existing battery meter, which was used with the PowerManagement.bundle in the attachment.

However, with the downloaded PowerManagement.bundle, sleep suddenly works. When I reinstall the old one to get the battery meter back, sleep stops working.

Any ideas why? Is there a way to get the best of both worlds?

Select the file, the folders it is in, and the hard drive, and "Get Info". At the bottom of the menu is a permissions box that you have to change to "Read/Write" instead of "Read-Only" for "everyone". Make sure to repair permissions via Disk Utility after you're done.

Thanks! But I fixed that by deleting the original file and pasting this PowerManagement.bundle there. It solved my problem. :). And my ethernet works only if I plugin the cable while booting. Is there any solution?

It didn't work for mine.
I followed the directions and rebooted, but have never been able to see a battery meter at all.
It's like the powermanagement.bundle is in the right place, but the system does not know it's supposed to be looking for it.
What can I do to fix it?

Is this still the best option out there for power management? I'm running a new install of Snow Leopard 10.6.1 and when I try to do this package, I can reboot successfully and everything seems to keep working.

But if I go into System Preferences and click on Energy Saver then System Preferences will freeze. My sleep still works brokenly and cannot check battery life, cannot get into Energy Saver at all.

With default Power module I can 0% battery life ( no info), I can go to sleep and wake up successfully, but all fans stay on and the screen darkens, but backlight stays on. It's like S1 state where I'd really like S3 fully in ram everything off sleep like I'm used to.

Hey Everyone,

So here is the final version of my PowerManagement.bundle with debug messages removed. For people who are interested in the discussion that occured during the development of this driver, please refer to: http://forum.osx86pr...h...237&hl=2200

Overview:
This PowerManagement.bundle fixes many of the issues that people were having with displaying battery time remaining on laptop systems. As many of you already know, Apple is using many of the advanced features of Intels new Core Duo architecture. One of these is the power management features. Therefore, much of the code was not written to support power management on older (ACPI-based) systems. This new bundles basically, adds support for detecting and retriving information from batteries registered using ACPI.

Who Should Use It:
Really this should only affect people who are using laptop systems, as there really aren't any power management features on a desktop. If you are having problems getting time remaining calculations to display properly I recomend trying this new bundle. If you are not having any problems, you are welcome to try it out anyways, but I really see no reason to. In designing the new ACPI support I tried to leave the existing functionality as intact as possible, therefore, I am sort of curious about whether I succeded. Therefore, if someone would like to try installing this on a working systems, I would be interested in hearing how it worked. (However backup your old bundle just in case.)

Installation:

1. Download the PowerManagement.tar.gz file below to your favorite location
2. Un-archive the files. This will leave you with a PowerManagement.bundle
3. Navigate to: /System/Library/SystemConfiguration
4. (Optional) Backup your old PowerManagement.bundle
5. Copy (drag-n-drop) the new bundle into the SystemConfiguration folder
6. When the dialog box pops up, select authenticate and type your admin password
7. Reboot
8. (Optional) For those of you who helped with testing the debug release, please delete /var/log/PM.log

Additionally, for those of you who are interested, source code of the changes has been provided as well.

Thanks to everyone's help in the original thread for their comments/questions/suggestions, as well as their help testing.


Did everything as described above but nothing worked. No battery meter: (
