Do you have System Preferences > Energy Saver > Options tab set to show the battery status in the menu bar?17" CD MBP, iPhone 3G, iPodTouch, Mac OS X (10.5.7), since the ][e

Currently Being ModeratedJun 18, 2009 11:23 AM (in response to gregory.beh)On the unibody MBPs with dual graphics cards, those options are the way one switches between the graphics cards. Since your MBP only has one graphics card, it seems logical for those options to be absent.
On my (older) MBP, those options are available in System Preferences > Energy Saver > Optimization pop-up menu, or by clicking on the battery icon in the menu bar - but, all they do is set 'default' times for display and system sleep (e.g. for the Power Adapter, setting to Better Performance sets system sleep to never and display sleep to 20 minutes, whereas Normal sets both sleeps to 10 minutes, etc.). So, 'Performance' has nothing to do with the CPU/GPU in that context.17" CD MBP, iPhone 3G, iPodTouch, Mac OS X (10.5.7), since the ][e
