Hi. I've always been able to see how much battery power my macbook has by looking at the battery icon in the upper right of my screen. All of a sudden its gone.

How can I put that back on my screen permenantly?
Thanks!

Go to your sys preferences and select energy saver. You will see a "show battery status in the menu bar" (bottom left) and put a check in the box.
