PowerManagement bundle (with ACPI) for Leopard

Recommended Posts

If you're lucky then this should work for you: PowerManagement.bundle.zip

Tell me how it works.

 

Hello,

 

This bundle also works for me! Great work! But i only have ~2hours in battery mode. It is right that there is no solution to undervolt the CPU or change the MHz?

 

Thanks!

Glad someone else has a weird configuration like me.

 

Use speedstep kernel to throttle the CPU. See here

 

Wow you get the time to show. Damn all I get is percentage. I have never had a laptop that actually calculated the time. However I hear its almost always off anyway.

Thanks for the link. Yes the Powermanagement.bundle from Superhai shows me the time!

 

My Laptop is already running on the Netkas Speedstep-Kernel 9.2.0. It is necessery to Update the Kernel to 10.5.1 to throttle the CPU?

 

edit:

 

Coolbook don't work for me. The program does not found the CPU?!

If you have speedstep 9.2.0 that is 10.5.2 second newest kernel. You are fine.

 

Can you post a screenshot of what coolbook looks like on your system with the cpu not recognized. I'm surprised I think its seeing mine but I just cant change any options. OR do you have to register it before you can change anything. it shows the entries for the Speedstep kernel on the left and everything on the right I cant edit.

 

Is that your experience?

 

THANKS

Yes coolbook is shareware so you have to pay for be able to change frequency and voltage. But it shows your speed and voltage without registering.

Hello,

 

I get the massage "Could not find default frequency/voltages" and then "could not find path 2". Whatever it means I don't see any Frequenzy of CPU. Really strange...

Do you have ACPICPUThrottle.kext that is needed to actually throttle the cpu.

 

You need to have that.

 

Then do you have the speedstep.app? The app allows you to see the speed the cpu is at. There is no need to have it if you dont want to always monitor the cpu speed.

 

All three and the 9.2.0 SS kernel make it work.

Hey,

 

thanks for the great help so far! I don't have the ACPICPUThrottle.kext and also I don't have the speedstep.app! Can you say me where I can find these files?

 

Speedstep Kernel 9.2.0 is installed!

 

Thank You

You can get the app here. I think this also has the throttle kext but not sure. Which you may have but not have it loaded. Go to your extensions folder and check for it.

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 ...

 

If this solution doesn´t help with problems relating to this, what does? I would appreciate any hints...

 

I am having serious problems with my computer overheating, and shutting down all of a sudden.

Thanks for the work :thumbsup_anim:

 

The power management bundle works on my laptop, Lenovo 3000 N100 with Kalyway 10.5.1

I even got the system to go to sleep, and wake up. Battery icon and percentage is available, just not so sure about time available though :D

 

Thanks again,

hi i've installed the powermanagement bundle, but the meter does not show. I want to change Info.Plist (the string from 1.0.5 to 1.1.0) but it tells me that i don't have the appropriate acces privileges. @ the document info, i added my name, and give me the right to read and write.

 

What do i have to do to show the battery meter????

Just to clarify - is this package neccessary for me running on kalyway 10.5.2 with vanilla kernel on a core 2 based laptop? There was a powermanagement bundle on the installer disc and I installed that.

 

Oddly though, on the first install everything worked perfectly but after breaking that, this time round, time calculation doesn't work (just says 10:00) and the battery percentage won't update. -_-

Thanks! This is awesome. I am on an HP Pavilion dv2617us

 

Works great except two minor problems:

 

1. When battery is charging is says "Battery is not charging" and the battery icon displays a plug instead of the lighting bolt like it should (it does charge however and the percentage goes up.

 

2. Can't calculate time remaining.

 

Thanks again and the best.

This works great. At least it did until I installed the ACPI Intel SpeedStep. Battery monitor works fine. I was under the impression that the Intel Centrino had speedstep. Apparently Leopard doesn't seem to agree.

 

Starts ups, rejects the speedstep and then halts.
