I read about AlDente here for saving MacBook Pro batteries, and signed up for Pro, I like it. Except it seems on a reboot/login, it does not run even though I have set "Launch at Login". I notice later on my battery is back up to 100%. Am I doing something wrong or is this some sort of bug?

I just had this problem with AlDente for the first time, I guess after the latest Monterey update. I did "top up" and then after that it wouldn't do anything but charge. I spent too much time on it but got it working after completely uninstalling every aspect of it and reinstalling and then the critical thing was rebooting the mac to get it to work. Might have been simpler and quicker if I rebooted the mac after just reinstalling the helper. But I don't know if that would have worked... Working now.

I just got a new Mac and noticed this... I just toggled the startup option and reinstalled the helper and that seemed to do it - like you, not sure what I did to make it start working. Definitely seems to be something with the latest update (same for my work MBP above).
