Battery level in dock?

Message #1 - Posted 2001/10/06 - Ian_Neath

In OS X 10.0.x, you could see the battery level in the dock. I just upgraded to OS X 10.1, and can't find this. (I don't like the icon in the menubar.) Am I just blind and can't find the appropriate place to set this, or was this removed?

On the other hand, I've been using my iBook for 2 hours on battery, and still have 1 hour and 44 minutes left!

Search for "Battery Monitor.dock". It should be in /Applications/Dock Extras
but if it isn't on your disk, devious old Apple deleted it.

If you don't have it, it's a hefty 2.1MB so I wouldn't be willing to email it through my piddly 56k modem, but I'm sure someone else will. Bear in mind it may well simply not work in 10.1

It was removed (replaces with the icon you don't like). Docklings are no more.

10.1 can shut down the hard disk while the machine was running. 10.0 couldn't.
