    Apparently, Apple managed to restore the power optimization settings in the battery bar as they were removed in 10.5.6 (See picture).

    Yeah, mine does not have that. My brother, who just updated as well, has it on his. What gives??

    It seems this might only apply to older models (pre-NVIDIA 9400/9600) as the removal of the option was described as being related to the power mode switching on the newer MBP. Apparently the change between GPUs was governed by Energy Saver settings.

    I got the menu option back but now I'm finding my Macbook doesn't hit sleep state correctly. With the lid closed the battery drains flat in less than three hours with no visible signs of activity.

    Changing ES prefs makes no difference.

    Try removing the battery and hold down the power buttton for five - ten seconds and then do a Pram reset. I think it is command + option + P + R all at the same time before the first chime then keep holding till the second chime. I think this will help.
