"dps" option is in System Prefs
Authored by: ahbe on Jan 28, '04 02:03:59PM

What version of OS X are you running? I'm on 10.3.2 on a 867Mhz 12" PB and I only have the option of Highest or Reduced. What gives?

Hey, yeah... stumbled accross the same question... BUT : 'man pmset' does tell you this one :
The -g flag outputs the settings currently in use (same as -g live ). -g disk will tell you the settings on disk. -g cap will tell you which power management features the machine supports. -g sched will show scheduled startup/wake and shutdown/sleep events.
So... just entering 'pmset -g cap' tells us :
Capabilities:
dim
spindown
sleep
reduce
womp
ring
acwake
autorestart
lidwake
... I'm sorry to say so... no dynamic cpu speed settings for us 12" PB users... but WHY ???

?

Is the dps option listet when querying with pmset -g cap ?!?

If yes... what could be the reason for this difference ?

using pmset -c dps 1 doesn't give me an error... but pmset -g
tells me it's a) still reduced and b) there is no dps option listet
on the capabilities list.

Any ideas ?
