Do you have the new MacBook Pro Retina? Running Mountain Lion 10.8.1 or less? Are you having battery life issues? Then head on over to cultofmac.com, which has a fix that worked for me. It seems that there’s a issue with a configuration file called
com.apple.desktop.plist that resides in your Preferences folder that you need to delete (don’t worry, it will be recreated automatically). If you’re too lazy (like me :-)) to click on the link, here are your options:
- Via the terminal:
- Open up a terminal.
cd ~/Library/Preferences/then press enter.
rm com.apple.desktop.plistthen press enter.
killall Dockthen press enter. This will restart the Dock and subsequently recreate the plist file you just deleted.
- Via Finder:
- Click on the Go menu item at the top.
- Click on the Go to Folder… menu item.
~/Library/Preferences/then press enter.
- Find the
com.apple.desktop.plistfile and move it to the Trash.
