It is still not there. Boot "-f" and provide ioreg. And check system.log for errors related to battery.

You definitely haven't followed the instructions for power management. Take another read. Here are some clues:

- your sysdef is MacBookPro8,1. Should be MacBookAir5,x (or maybe MacBookPro9,x)
- you're lacking DropSSDT=Yes
- you're missing an SSDT
- not sure about the state of GenerateC/PStates in org.chameleon.Boot.plist

How can I fix this without having to start all over and re-install the operating system?

Unfortunately, trying to re-run multibeast failed. It wouldn't let me run it. Therefore, I've got to re-download Mavericks installation to my VMware installation of Mountain Lion and start all over. This may take me some time. Once I get the OS Re-installed, I'll begin with the Power Management post and go through it, then post the IOReg and see if it's correct.

It may be a while, because my connection here at home is a little slow. Mavericks will take some time to download.

Wouldn't let you run it, or wouldn't let you install things with it?

If the latter, points to a kernel cache issue. You could rebuild cache via DPCIManager and pay attention to the logs to see what the problem is.

It wouldn't let me install things with it. I haven't been keeping up my log of processes like I should. It may be better for me to start fresh. If I had done things right the first time I wouldn't be having these issues. That way I can log what I do properly.:think:
