    The title basically sums up my inquiry.

    I used to can find this a while back but now I couldn't.

    Thanks in advance.

    I knew I wasn't going crazy. It's a very useful "automated" tool for me when I want to conserve battery.

    Funny how a lot of people still think it's there...I was one of them. ;)

    All it did to Intel Macs was adjusts when your display/computer sleeps and dims the display.

    Nothing exciting.. you can dim the display to suit yourself and when away from keyboard press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to sleep the display instantly.

    Funny, I have a new MBP 13" and it doesn't have that. Hmmm....

    Anybody else can explain this?

    You don't have dual graphics cards.
