    My mbp has the CPU whine and seeing how ShhMBP was not working under snow leopard i tried to create a fix. This is still a work in progress so let me know if it works.

    So you will need a program called lingon and the ShhMBP program which are provided below.

    Instrcutions on how to enable Shhmbp under snow leopard:

    1. Copy the ShhMBP folder to /Applications/Utilities

    2. With Lingon, create a new launchd configuration file with these settings:

    -- "Where" is "Users Daemons."

    -- "Name" is something like


    Replace "yourusername" with your OS X account name. (That's the name next to the house in your Finder sidebar, and it's case sensitive.)

    -- "What" is /Applications/Utilities/ShhMBP/ShhMBP start

    -- "When" is

    "Run it when it is loaded by the system (at startup or login)."

    3. Save and authenticate. This places the file
    com.yourusername.launchd.shhmbp in /Library/LaunchDaemons, from where it will run the specified Terminal command with root privileges at startup or login.

    4. Restart

    5. Open up Console and search for "shhmbp", you should see

    "launchd.shhmbp [45] Starting up ShhMBP" <-- This means the program started up correctly, if you don't see this you messed up

    somewhere, i would suggest you start all over.

    Here are the files you will need:
