    All of a sudden, it's not letting me set the optimization in the menu bar...

    Have you updated to 10.5.6 ?, as that might be the reason

    Same here. I'm in 10.5.6 but I checked on a new MBP with 10.5.5 and it had the same problem.

    I did update to 10.5.6.

    But I could have sworn I was still able to set the energy setting within the menu bar itself after the update. Maybe, I'm delusional.

    I think if you look in one of the 10.5.6 updates threads its a feature that went missing after the update, so maybe you are delusional

    That feature is non-existent on the Unibody machines.
    Also any older MB/MBPs update to 10.5.6 will not show that option anymore. unless you go to Energy preferences.

    Well, I just updated to 10.5.6 and figured this out too.

    I used this feature all the time. Is there not a way to get it back? Replace the 10.5.6 menu extra from 10.5.5?

    Very inconvenient.

    I just reinstalled Leopard from my newly delivered Mac Box Set.

    Surprise! The menu options are back, and I have the new CFL light bulb icon on the Energy Saver preference pane. :D

    The build that ships on the new disc is 10.5.6 Build 9G66, compared to 9G55 that is available through Software Update.
