    I was just messing around whilst surfing and I pressed the battery button whilst thinking..

    Something appeared in the middle of the screen (Looked like a snowflake).. I can't make this come back again by pressing it ?

    Thanks guys

    The battery button is on the side of the MacBooks/MacBook Pros or on the bottom.
    What you pressed is either the F1 or F2 key or the F5 or F6 key or the F11 or F12 key.

    Maybe have a look here to learn more about Mac OS X:

    Sorry guys I am sure it's not one of the buttons. I use the function buttons pretty regularly so I would know if it was one of them.

    It was like a star-flake icon in the middle of the screen. I was just tapping the battery button on the side (Yes i know it's to show the battery charge level!)

    Oh and it's right in the middle of the screen rather than lower/bottom of the screen.

    arghh nope none of those.. It's none of the function key things.

    I don't know.. I guess I'll have to mess around with the battery button again until it comes up :p
