    Whenever I try and open up my energy saver preferences a pop up appears "Could not install (null) preferences pane". The energy saver preferences is not in my system preferences anymore I have to spotlight search to try and open it. I have the highest update on all of my settings for my macbook pro (one of the original 13" pros from when they changed the macbook unibody to the macbook pro). I've tried googling and nothing really substantial comes up or I just cannot understand it.

    I've tried repairing disk permissions etc...anyone else have this issue?

    Put the OS X disk in while the computer is running and click install Snow Leopard. It will redo the system files and leave all your files alone and should fix the problem.
