Default Can't save energy settings - 09-17-2009, 09:17 PM

This is probably as much of a newbie OSX question as a DM9 question. Sometimes I want to defeat the screen and sleep settings while on battery. I go to preferences, energy saver, set it for battery and custom. I slide both bars all the way to the right. How do I save these settings? They always revert to the more conservative settings.

Never mind. Something was wrong with my computer. It is as if the SSD went into read only mode or something. It refused to create or write any data. A reboot seems to have resolved it. I am now able to create, write and the energy settings stuck.

I guess a periodic reboot may not be a bad idea with these things.
