autoy-yeah, this "bug" is known to me. I am working on a fix atm which involves adding a policy entry into /etc/authorization...but I cannot get it working yet. I am definatly looking into it and it will be fixed by beta2. The real problem is that the authorization reference times out after 5 minutes. This is a "security feature" to prevent programs from hijacking your system, so i need to find a way around it. Thank you for bring this bug up autoy and im glad you enjoy this little app

Thanks, I like the app, too. I have also experienced the bug, which is about my only major annoyance. I notice that none of the buttons seem to work- loading the kext, saving, or loading a profile, all of which are great ideas.

Thanks again, keep working!!

sonicbuddha, those buttons are disabled in this beta because i have not implemented the kext loading function, and the current implemntation for creating and setting profiles are not working as intended. I wanted to release a version that had most of the features so people could play with them, and the next beta should enable profiles as well as fix the authorization bug. I havent looked yet at doing the kextload, but it should be rather trivial and you should look for that in the next release as well. Thanks for the input.

First off, Thanks for a great tool you saved my lap from burning :)

However I've noticed that I can't add cputhrottler2 to startup...if I do then I don't get an cpu settings....if I don't add it to startup and open it manually then it works fine.

By the way hows the whole saving settings going? still working on it or give up?

The program itself works great.. but it makes the "funk" sound every minute or so. It also interferes with other programs on here.. like Terminal and Disk Utility, and when I empty the garbage. I get the same error as this fellow.

Great App..... but I have the following problem:

I installed ACPICPUThrottle, then your App, everithing works great, but when I reboot mi Laptop, your App doesnt work any more, because the ACPICPUThrottle.kext doesn load automatically.

It seems to interfere with some applications. I cannot invoke the terminal. (The terminal starts with command completed!!)

yeah, another program is messes with is iChat. It wants me to sign up all over again when I start it with CPUThrottler. But when I close the CPUThrottler and open iChat, it is fine.

Got it going, but the Beta 2 still asks for permission every 5 min. Anything I need to do to fix the problem?

Way to go! This adds a features really needed in the bare bones that Niall setup. I like the improvements.

Problems:

1) How to get back to the dialog box once you've set your profile and closed the interface. Now I want to change my settings- can I do this without closing the app and restarting? I know you're working on it but a context menu for the menu bar icon would be a fantastic addition.

2) I'm confused about the actual instalation and if it conflicts with the autostart version of Niall's package. If I don't use the autostart/autothrottle CPUThrottleCtrl that Niall offers because it conflicts with your package, which it seems to do, what is the best way to load the throttle driver at boot?

Thanks for your help and, really, good work!

About the kext not loading automatically after installing... did you guys update your kextcache and mcache?

Aha! That would explain why the non-autostart version of ACPICPUThrottle.kext does not load after installation.

Thanks for the heads up.

Until ACPICPUThrottle.kext is fixed for 10.4.8, CPUThrottler2 is useless in that OS version. I'm not sure if CPUThrottler2 is being developed further in GUI.
