wrong battery/ac status

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


i use applesmartbatterymanager kext to show battery status icon on finder bar. kext works fine.

the only problem is the following:

with the laptop plugged on AC Power if I unplug battery the finder bar icon shows Battery as power source. If I re-plug battery it shows correctly AC as Power Source.

Do you know why? same thing happens with voodoobattery and appleacpibatterymanager.

Maybe I have to fix something in dsdt.... I don't know...........

Can anyone help me?

Macs can't start without a battery, so this happens due to that limitation. I have this behavior too.
