Energy Saver Control Panel trippin'

Message #1 - Posted 2004/08/02 - Lorenzo Thurman

Whenever I try to open Energy Saver from the Sys Prefs, it will fail to open until I have tried to open some of the other Sys Prefs first. Usually after opening 5 or 6 of the others, it will open. I would like to throw out its preferences to see if that fixes it, but I can't find them. I looked in both `/Library/Preferences and /Library/Preferences to no avail. Where can I find it? Or is there a better answer? TIA

A search of google.com for "Energy Saver preferecnes won't open" give as the first result:
