battery level indicator in control strip

Message #1 - Posted 2003/09/18 - Timothy Domst

I need to know how to show the battery indicator with the timer in the control strip. The one that is in the control strip now has two sets of bars, one set for a battery in one side and one set for the other. There is only one battery in the machine, though, the other slot is taken up with a cdrom. I can't figure out how to switch to the timer.

. . . I believe the control strip timer only shows if the Powerbook is unplugged from the mains supply.

You're the man. I had to reboot with the power adapter unplugged. Thanks.
