    I've noticed that my uMBP doesn't have different battery settings like "best battery life" better performance" etc... I'm talking about the battery settings in the menu bar. See the pic below to see what I mean. On older MBPs the menu bar has the option to change the batter settings.

    Does anybody know what changing the setting to "better battery life" actually did anyways? Did it underclock the GPU and CPU? Or did it just change the sleep settings?
