Is this charging screen in 10.10.3 for all laptops or only for the nMB ?

    Check out this review of the New Macbook and pause at 4.49 (or just take a look at my screenshot).

    What's up with that charging screen ?
    My Late 2013 rMBP 15" running 10.10.3 does not display it. Maybe I missed a checkbox or something ?

    I think it looks kinda cool. :)

    Well, the MB has no indicator lights anywhere, not even on the cord. So it would appear this is what you get to let you know battery and charging status.

    Good point, but still... (attached image)

    Oh, well. It look's great. Too bad it only for the rMB :)

    Right. I guess that's what I'm wondering...does the other screen show regardless of whether booted, logged in, etc.? Maybe built into EFI?

    Nah, we have to discover how to get this on every mac. Critical! I'm putting my best men on it now...you.

    yes, however it only turns on for a moment - think of the same as iPhone does.

    I have this line too : defaults write com.apple.PowerChime ChimeOnAllHardware -bool true

    It's for the chime when you connect the power

    Cool. This works ! :)
    If you can figure a way to make the charging screen work on the Retina Macbook Pro too that would be great.
