Okayyy so- I have a unibody 15" macbook pro. I'll go into my energy saver. The "better battery life" box is checked. So I go ahead and check the "Better Performance" box. I log out, and log back in. I go to my graphics settings and the "Better Performance" box is checked, however it still says next to it - you must log out for the changes to take affect... funny since I just logged out. I tried doing an smc/pram/nvram reset... but nope Just to prove the "better performance" isn't happening, I ran an xbench test before and after I logged out into the better performance modes. The graphics scores were pretty much exactly the same. Here's a post on the Apple forums w/ someone w/ the same problem. http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=9812869� Anyway, any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks!
