Why is 10.2.3's Energy Saver Still Dysfunctional?
As an iBook user, I'm continually puzzled by the fact that through three updates 10.2's Energy Saver still isn't totally functional. How so you ask? Well, try to work with the pre-sets in the Optimization menu. Logically, I should be able to set separate optimization types for the battery power and AC adapter configurations. Let's say that I want Best Battery Life for the battery configuration and Highest Performance for the AC configuration. With the AC menu choice selected, I select Highest Performance. Then I switch to battery and select Best Battery Life. When I switch back to the AC setting, I find that it has been changed to Best Battery Life; if I change it back, then the battery power setting changes to Highest Performance too. In short, the most recent preset setting is applied to both. I can't imagine that I'm the only one experiencing this issue, so why hasn't Apple fixed it yet? This problem certainly isn't significant, but it's a nuisance nonetheless.
