Energy Saver prefs

Message #1 - Posted 2005/02/03 - Christopher Moss

My wife has a new iMac G5, and used firewire to transfer her user folder and apps to it from her powerbook. This has led to a curious problem. The powerbook shows the battery icon in the menubar and this preference has transferred to the iMac. The EnergySaver panel in SystemPreferences does not have a box to untick to remove this; it knows it is running in a mac without a battery. I have looked for energy saver prefs/plist to remove but have only found a menuextra.battery.plist, which simply sets whether it shows time remaining etc.
Anybody know which file to remove?
