    Hi.

    I bought MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014, Yosemite 10.10.1), in "Energy Saver" I see the following:

    but on my old MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2012, Yosemite 10.10) I see the following:

    Why the settings quite different? It's okay or I have a defective model?

    It looks fine to me...It's certainly not defective. A hardware defect would not manifest itself in that way. I don't know why it has the option to enable automatic graphics switching on the 13" that has only one graphics option though.

    Both look fine to me, but the top one cannot be a 13". It has to be a 15" unit as the 13" doesn't have two graphics cards thus cannot switch graphics.

    First of all, you're not on Yosemite. The three 'traffic light' buttons on the top left indicate that it's Mavericks or older.

    And if there is automatic graphics switching, it's most definitely NOT a 13".

    Go to  and click About This Mac.

    Post back the screenshot (click on More Info if it doesn't show the window I attached below).

    Late-2013 and later MacBooks have a different Energy Saver pane, where you cannot force the computer to stay awake when the display is off, under battery power.

    It is 100% both MacBook Pro 13-inch.

    @yjhua95
    on screenshots is really not Yosemite, is a screenshot from the official Apple site, the content that I have the same.

    that's why I have different settings. New power settings are terrible and shortened. I understand it is impossible to restore the old settings, right?

    It's impossible.

    The reason why Apple disabled the option to prevent sleep when on battery power is because the computer wakes up so fast from sleep that you wouldn't even know that it was sleeping at all.

    To disable sleep while the display is off on battery power, I use InsomniaX (free).

    "traffic light " buttons didn't disappear with Yosemite, I still have them on the latest version 10.10.1

    I never said they disappeared.

    What I meant was that the traffic light buttons showed by the OP was of the Mavericks style. The Yosemite ones are flat.
