    But you're assuming many things without a clue, first and foremost that I'm the only one having a problem with the battery drain (while it is a plethora of other users) and that an Apple engineer would reccomend your solution to solve this issue with Lion (at least you've stopped tmapering with the GPU).

     

    I didn't assume that you're the only one with problem but I'm sorry if I sounded that way. I've had this problem too, but it was offset once I started manually switching the GPU or quitting apps using Cmd + Q. That's why I promoted those solutions here.

     

    I recently had coffee with an apple engineer and he did agree about the calibration issue.

     

    The problem is yours: choose what is the the problem and its solution: either the GPU or the battery calibration.

     

    I merely said that the GPU switching worked for me, while opposing your position that battery calibration is not for the new Macbook Pros with non-user replaceable batteries. I think that it would be better to try both and the SMC reset. Time consuming, but if it works then that's good right.

    Please boot your laptop with battery fully charged, open only Safari and Mail.app minimized, half dim the screen luminosity and tell us what is your real battery duration.

     

    Then do the same with SL version prior 10.6.6

     

    Thanks.

    I get 5:51 while running Chrome (too many tabs to switcto safari), Mail app minimized, half dim, active Bluetooth DUN and bluetooth USB mouse. Hi-res screen and i7 processor. OS is 10.7.2.

    Amazing. Try that on SL prior 10.6.6

    Have fun, as we are all doing.

     

    PS I'm asuming you are telling us the real life of your battery, not what the system will scribe.

    Do you actually get 5:51 or are you reading the estimate?

  • di1in Level 1 (0 points)

    @Rayced Jeez, you are a troubled person.

     

    @Csound1 That was the estimate read off, but usualy when I browse through the ethernet with everything else the same, I get around 6 hours. Under SL it was roughly around 7 with 10% percent or so left on the meter.

    Is this a way to offend people around, or is it just your opinion? Or probably are you referring to the trouble I'm having with a battery drain on a $2000 laptop?

     

    Please make it clear.

     

    PS if indeed you meant it, well I'm glad to be since it means I'm the one able to read a technical document while you aren't.

    Now is it clear?

    Very clear.

    Check if the estimate time will correspond to real battery life, then try using SL prior 10.6.6

    Then we'll see who's troubled, ok?

    Then you need to actually test the estimate, because it is only an estimate. At the moment you do not know how long your battery life is, only what the estimate thinks it is.

    Problem solved!

     

    I was all set to go back to SL, but decided to look at the forum one last time.  As with many others in the forum, the problem for me was AGAdminService daemon.  (You can't see Daemons from the Activity Monitor).

     

    To see what Daemons are running and what's eating your CPU, run this:

     

    top -o cpu

     

    For me, this was at the top:

     

    646- AGAdminServi 100.1 05:44.39 7/1   1    76   N/A   N/A    N/A    N/A

     

    To kill the daemon, run this:

     

    sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.citrix.agadminservice.plist

     

    Problem solved!  Worked for me.  Hope it works for you.

  • Ilhan Kudeki Level 1 (0 points)

    I didn't see that daemon in the list that showed up.  The other's aren't taking more than 2-3% cpu, and there aren't a lot of them.

     

    This solution doesn't seem to apply to my situation.

    Do you realize this thread has been going on for almost five months now?  Without an agreed upon resolution?  That's a **** of a lot of lost productivity in order to use an OS variant whose main charm is ... ?   The ability to store one's data on a remote server and recall it?  Well, I hope you solve the problem soon.  It's almost time for the holidays.  It hurts to imagine millions of uses futzing with their Macs when they should be out having fun.  Or has Apple discovered the wholly grail to retail success:  more futzing!

    Did this solve the problem for me? No, but it's an outstanding way to use Terminal to track processes; I hadn't even been aware of this Terminal command. If you don't mind my asking, where was this info located? Do you have other cool tricks you can turn us on to?

     

    Great info.

  • IMightBeThomas Level 1 (0 points)

    I agree. This was quite an interesting helpful tip.

     

    The one at the top for me was PluginProcess. Is this needed? I'll assume so but just like it to be comfirmed.

     

    Thanks
