There used to be an option for a UPS configuration under System Preferences - Engery Saver for previous versions of OS X.  Can this feature still be accessed for OS X 10.9, and if so, how and where?

MacBook Pro :: Energy Saver - Could Not Install (null) Preferences Pane

Jan 2, 2011

Whenever I try and open up my energy saver preferences a pop up appears "Could not install (null) preferences pane". The energy saver preferences is not in my system preferences anymore I have to spotlight search to try and open it. I have the highest update on all of my settings for my macbook pro (one of the original 13" pros from when they changed the macbook unibody to the macbook pro). I've tried googling and nothing really substantial comes up or I just cannot understand it. I've tried repairing disk permissions etc.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: The Energy Saver In System Preferences Has No Effect

IMac :: Energy Saver Options - Put Computer - Display - Hard Disks To Sleep

Jan 16, 2009

1 "Put the computer to sleep when it is inactive for.."
2 "Put display to sleep after..."
3 "Put Hard Disks to sleep when possible..."

I'm guessing that #1 won't spin down the Hard Disks unless #3 is checked? Is that right? I'm also guessing that if I'm downloading a file or securely deleting the trash my iMac won't go to sleep? The reason I ask is because it seems like if I'm deleting the trash and my display goes to sleep, when I come back to the computer i really don't see any progress. What options do you guys typically use? I keep my iMac on 24/7, but didn't know about the first sleep option.

IMac :: SSD And Energy Saver Settings?

Dec 18, 2010

If I replace my mid-2007 iMac's internal HDD with an SSD, will Snow Leopard still present me with the "Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible" checkbox on the Energy Saver power settings screen? If so, do I tick it or not? I will still have an HDD for Time Machine connected via FW800.

OS X :: UMBP Energy Saver Options - Right?

Mar 21, 2009

I'd like to set my mpb (early 2009) to "higher performance" for the power adaptor and "better battery life" while on the battery. Can someone confirm if this is possible? I can't seem to do this because when I change it on one power source it automatically changes it on the other power source. Is there something obvious I am missing - I have searched the forums in vain. (I have checked that I don't need any software updates).

Aug 8, 2009

In all the screenshots I see of Energy Save.prefpane, I notice that people have a "Better Battery Life" setting or something similar. However, my Energy Saver looks like this (screenshot below). Why is this? Anyway to change it if it is actually different and incorrect?

MacBook Pro :: Energy Saver On / Off Macros

Mar 10, 2010

I am sure someone has made a macro (using either applescript or automator) to turn energy saver on or off (ie, to switch between graphics cards). If I understood automator or applescript, i would do it myself, but sadly i don't. Is there anyone out there that might be able to but such a macro together for me, or share theirs?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Energy Saver Stuck On Never

May 12, 2012

Recently, I have noticed that my Macbook Pro running lion will not ever go to sleep, regardless of what values I choose on the sliders for "Computer sleep" and "Display sleep." The value to the right of the bar says "Never" no matter what. I'm wondering on how to make these values actually represent the values I choose on the slider, rather than always "Never."

OS X :: Sound Problems/ Energy Saver Issues

Aug 11, 2009

i just bought an external speaker set- Phillips Smart Sound Solution.. Followed the directions for set up properly, except for the part about plugging a green plug into the green audio slot. I know that there is a green plug in on PC's, but on my macbook pro, the only slot I think would make sense to plug into would be the one in front of my headphone slot. After plugging this in, I go to my preferences or whatever, and then go to audio, and the only thing listed is internal speakers...

The "energy" issue... I have my energy saving issues set to never put hard disks to sleep, to not put the computer to sleep etc.... And when listening to iTunes, or just letting the computer set, it logs me out... I have the settings to never shut off when plugged in, and when on battery....

Mac Pro :: Display Will Not Sleep In Energy Saver Settings?

Apr 9, 2010

I have a new issue with my Mac Pro (3,1 - 2008), it just popped up (and I don't think it was caused by 10.6.3, I remember this working correctly after it was installed)I have two monitors connected via DVI to a flashed XFX 4870. The 4870 has never given me any trouble.the Energy Saver settings, I usually set the machine to never sleep, and the displays to sleep after 5 minutes. This used to work great, never had any trouble with it, ever. Now, the displays don't go to sleep after 5 minutes, they just stay on with a screensaver.

can someone using 10.5.6 on a Mac released before the new MacBooks please do me a favour and go to /System/Library/PreferancePanes and check if EnergySaver.prefpane is version number 4.0?

im using the Energy Saver preference pane which came with the new MacBook's Leopard install and i want to put back the old one back which came with Leopard installed on my Core Duo MacBook Pro but i lost my back up! so i want to know if the version from 10.5.0 is the same as 10.5.6. i hope i made sense .

p.s. i dont backup the system with Time Machine so i cant go back in Time and get it .

MacBook :: Energy Saver Icon - Change The Settings

Feb 7, 2009

I just noticed a small but very annoying change. I have the energy saver pane appear in the menu bar on my iBook. It used to be when I clicked the battery icon I could select Better Battery Life, Better Performance, or Normal from the drop down menu. I don't when this change happened, but I am now no longer able to select those from the icon, I have to open System Preference to change it. [URL]

OS X :: Changing Graphic Power Settings Within Energy Saver

Jun 18, 2009

I am new to Mac - having wished I had converted years ago - my new MacBook Pro is great. Mac makes Windows seem like living in the stone age, but I am rambling. I have found that it's possible to manually change graphic power settings within energy saver, but is there just that one setting? I would have hoped for an automatic change of settings depending if you are working on mains or battery. Unrelated, does a Mac have a delete key?

OS X Mavericks :: Energy Saver Settings Revert Back

Sep 9, 2014

I change my Energy Saver settings (Mavericks), but the changes do not remain.  Once the display goes to sleep, the settings change back to other values (which aren't the same as the default settings).  This happens even though I have the settings locked.  Could some other utility be changing the settings? My Macbook Pro was imaged through my work - might they have set something up that can revert settings? 

I've already tried trashing the com.apple.PowerManagement.plist file and restarting - that didn't solve the problem.

OS X :: Energy Saver Settings - Delete .plist File For To Start Over?

Dec 27, 2008

Well 10.5.6 has been so much fun and full of surprises - like a box of chocolates Gump would say. For some reason, the sleep function settings won't reset. I had my iMac set to sleep the HD after about an hour. I changed the setting to never, but it still wants to sleep. Never had any trouble like this before the update. My install is almost virgin as I had to reinstall because of the update. I don't have any add-ons running or anything like that. Can I delete the .plist file for these settings to start over?

I am unable to change "Energy Saver" settings in System Settings using Yosemite 10.10.1.  In particular, I want to uncheck the "Put Hard Disks to Sleep" option.

Jun 28, 2009

I have my 09 mini connected to a Dell E177FP and I have the energy preferences set to turn the display off after 15 minutes. The problem is that the display never turns off. It just sits at the "check signal" screen as if it was not plugged into anything. How can I get the monitor to go into standby mode?
