Okay so heres my story. For about 5 months I was using candybar to customize my dock, all of my application icons and all of my folders. Recently I noticed that my battery life was getting really bad. (3 hrs on a 2010 mbp running only safari no flash) so I decided to do a fresh install of Snow Leopard. Upon finishing the reinstall I noticed that my batter lasted about 6 hours so that ruled out any hardware failure. I tried reinstalling candybar and adding a few of my icons and as soon as I activated it, my battery went down the drain again. I don't know what it is, but it sure is annoying. Anyone else notice this? Geektool also causes constant Kernal Panics on my mac. I have never been able to figure out why. I also noticed that when I use geektool it drains the battery quicker.
