Why does it seem like I have a different Energy Saver Preference Pane than everyone?

    In all the screenshots I see of Energy Save.prefpane, I notice that people have a "Better Battery Life" setting or something similar. However, my Energy Saver looks like this (screenshot below). Why is this? Anyway to change it if it is actually different and incorrect? Thanks.

    That looks normal, at least, it matches mine.

    Does your Energy Saver settings have the new icon like this or the old fashioned light bulb?

    I am not really sure why the difference. Hopefully somebody else will have some ideas? :eek: :)

    I can't find the right thread at the moment but I think it has to do with the unibodies. They have different energy saver preferences than the previous models.
