PowerManagement bundle (with ACPI) for Leopard

243 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone !

 

After tweaking a little Tiger PowerManagement.bundle by keithpk (see: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=14912 for more information)

 

here comes the same, but rebuilt for Leopard (10.5.1).

 

What works:

 

- Battery meter (percentage / time) while using only primary battery.

- EnergySaver settings (are retained correctly, unlike when using Tiger bundle on Leopard)

(be aware that manipulating these settings does change your system hibernate mode back to standard -

SafeSleep (mode 3) - use sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 hibernatefile /dev/null on the console to reset to what seems to work

for laptop sleep for most people out here - check status with pmset -g)

 

What does not:

 

- Real power management (CPU speed / display dimming .. etc): Powermanagement.bundle is not responsible

for applying any of these .. it just provides a way of changing settings and provides battery meter icon ...

 

- Battery indicator when using two batteries and / or hotswapping secondary battery

(what happens is that battery meter will display inconsistent info when using two batteries and changing

power source ...

- hotswapping support for secondary battery is simply not there in the Apple code.

- reading of current power source (in IOKit/ps) always reads the first battery only (which indicates fact of

being AC Power connected when fully charged and not in use ... at least on my laptop .. YMMV)

(not sure this can be fixed until Apple releases laptops with multiple batteries ...)

 

Installation:

 

1. Download the PowerManagement-137-1.bundle.tar.gz file (and unarchive it)

2. Go to: /System/Library/SystemConfiguration

3. Backup your old PowerManagement.bundle

4. Copy the new bundle into the /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/ folder

5. Reboot

 

Downloads:

 

09.01.2008: Updated (137-1) release (fixes time calculation in battery meter):

 

PowerManagement_137_1.bundle.tar.gz

PowerManagement_137Modified_1.source.tar.gz

 

Problems:

 

Battery meter does not show: check your AppleACPIPlatform version: kextstat | grep ACPI

 

- Battery meter does not show while using AppleACPIPlatform v 1.1.0 (KALYWAY)

( -> to fix KALYWAY AppleACPIPlatform: edit /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleACPIPowerSource.kext/Contents/Info.plist

file and change:

<key>OSBundleLibraries</key>

<dict>

<key>com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform</key>

<string>1.0.5</string>

to:

<string>1.1.0</string>

(then reboot or

sudo kextload -t /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleACPIPowerSource.kext ..)

 

- Battery meter shows OK with AppleACPIPlatform v 1.0.5 (iATKOS?)

 

- I do not think it will work with vanilla AppleACPIPlatform ... (vanilla does not have ACPIPowerSource PlugIn ..)

 

Sleep does not work anymore: (BUT WAS working before installing this bundle):

 

- Open Energy Saver Pref pane, make your changes

- from Terminal run sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 hibernatefile /dev/null

- You will notice that Battery/AC Power options in the pane moved to "Custom": LEAVE these like this:

changing to Normal / Better Performance / Better Battery Life will reset your system sleep mode again.

(Alternatively: just remember to go to Custom mode before putting system to sleep)

 

Old download (do not use ..) 07.01.2008: Initital (137) release (does not calculate battery/charge time):

 

PowerManagement_137.bundle.tar.gz

PowerManagement_137Modified.source.tar.gz

 

Enjoy !

Looks good on my HP nw9440, leo 10.5.1 kalyway. I was able to change power settings for battery. However my laptop still doesn't go sleep when I select Sleep from the Apple menu. Screen goes black but fans and leds are on. If I close the lid, it's even worse - all fans and leds are on, when I reopen the lid, the screen goes back on but the system is frozen and I have to power it off. Reboot also doesn't work.

Hi,great Forum!

On my Toshiba A100 the Powermanagement works great. :) Good work.

I can change the mode in which the notebook should be. But showing the remaining battery time does not work. There is just :(calculating...)

 

I'm only missing an opportunity to set the backlight of the lcd lower.

 

However from the beginning on the sleep mode does not work(also not yet).The fans(CPU/GPU?) do not stop and the Led from the power button glows also. I think only the HDD seems to stop.

 

Update: If the lcd goes off and i want to go back to leo( typing on a key/touchpad) only the screen backlight goes on... waiting a minute the backlight goes off...(it is a loop) => i have to restart the pc, because can not see what i do :)

 

Greetings,

Nero

 

Ps. sorry for my bad english, i'm no native speaker.

Man! I LOVE YOU! thank you thank you thank you! Now I don't have to worry about my laptop randomly going to sleep again! I wonder how much battery life i will be able to squeeze out of my laptop with "better battery saving" setting... will it be like vista? ie. 3 hours? I do wonder... I will try this out when I have time later today.

 

Thank you!

 

Edit: P.S. my laptop is the hp DV2221tx if it would help anyone.

Hey everyone !

 

Thanks for trying out !

 

1. For battery meter not showing problem: check permissions (chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/PowerManagement.bundle ; chmod -R 755 /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/PowerManagement.bundle), then go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver and mark the checkbox in options tab (show battery meter ...)

 

2. For sleep not working - if it worked before and does not now it's because the bundle resetted your sleep mode back to the original mode 3 (Safe Sleep) most likely: open terminal and set it to 0 (sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0) - you will notice that Energy Saver settings change to custom: leave these like that - if you switch them back to Better Battery Life the sleep mode will be set to 3 again ...

(check in terminal with pmset -g).

Doesn't work on dell E1505, no battery meter available. Permissions are correct.

Does this one also work with the Vanilla ACPIPlatform.kext? Because the Tiger version doesn't. And the Vanilla ACPIPlatform.kext is the only one that puts my laptop to sleep the correct way.

Yes, it should work with Vanilla ACPIPlatform.kext too (that;s to say: if that kext does not run OK on your platform ... you'll not see the battery indicator either ... since it addreses batteries via ACPI ...)

Uhmm.... forgetting sudo?

You need root permissions to chown and chmod a file that is only editable by root....

kernel extension /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleACPIPowerSource.kext has problems:Missing dependencies:{ "com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform" = "A valid compatible version of this dependency cannot be found"}

 

Check that ACPIApplePlatform version listed in /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleACPIPowerSource.kext/Info.plist matches the one in/System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/version.plist ....

 

Anyone with dell 1520 with Kalyway 10.5.1 have the powermanagment bundle working?

 

Yes.
