Aergia is a menubar app i've made because i got tired of joggling with 3 ore more apps to do my daily osx86 routine. It's intended to be a easy one-click-away type of tool, for the lazy. Hence the fitting name.

On to the features:
The restart button: uses a script that bypasses normal restart routine, it's for the systems that for some reason can't restart normally. It was made for my laptop when it had this bug so results will vary, the restart may not be instant and can actually take a few minutes or not happen at all.
The sleep and shutdown are just there to complement the restart one.
Toggle Turbo States: This is a useful feature for laptop users when they go mobile and want more battery life. Currently it works only on Chameleon by altering the DropSSDT=Yes/No field. Based on the assumptions it actually affects your system.
Toggle File Visibility: Just your average show/hide hidden files function.
Rebuild Kext Caches:
Kext installer: It's a basic kext installer, you can choose if you want to install it in the current partition or another. It launches a finder window, so if you have finder in the background so will this window be. Next version will fix this.

The round blue info button provides some info about the features, and the "x" closes, not hides, the utility.
