Not working on my Dell X300.

 

- It does show a battery icon in the menu bar but with an "X" through it. No Batteries Available.

- Tried reboot, unplugging and plugging in battery, fixing permissions, etc.

- Tried unplugging power adapter.

 

Any things I can do to help narrow it down or assist in updating the driver?

Great work putting this together! The battery meter works quite well (despite sometimes showing 102% charge...weird), but seems to be dead on when plugged in and not.

 

Screen will sleep when I set it (15 mins), but if I go to the Apple Menu and select Sleep, or close the lid, it'll go to sleep (pulsing power light and all), but never wake up. Well, not 100% sure of this. When I open the lid, hit the power button... the HD spins up, my DVD drive spins up... like it's coming out of sleep. But the screen stays pitch black.

 

So, an improvement from before (where I couldn't even access any power management stuff), but still having quirky issues. Is there anything else I can try, to help figure this out?

 

Thanks again,

-Cupertino

Is there any way to get this to make it so that it won't ever go into sleep mode when I close the lid of my laptop?

 

get Insomnia.kext

If you use ATI Radeon Mobility graphics chip, to shut off the LCD screen, you can try RadeonTool:

It works on my Radeon M 7500.

This worked on my Latitude D610 and 10.4.6 Jas install. This means I have Everything working (including sleep) with MacOS X86. Everything except for the monitor plugged in during boot.
