    Specs:
    13"MBP 2.53GHz 4GB 10.6 250GB Seagate Hybrid SSD
    Energy saver in system pref freezes
    So, every time I open up the energy saver preferences, it looks like this:



    Also, if i try to check/uncheck a box, it freezes the system pref app.

    WTF, mate?

    Open the Finder and navigate to:

    MacIntosh HD/System/Library/PreferencePanes/

    Look for a folder called: EnergySaver.prefPane

    Is it there?

    21" iMac 2.9Ghz 16GB RAM - 10.11.3, iPhone6s & iPad Air 2 - iOS 9.2.1, ATV 4Th Gen tvOS, ATV3
    Would putting to the desktop the Preferences .plist help any .... ??

    The only ones i could find are
    com.apple.preference.desktopscreeneffect.plist
    com.apple.PreferenceSync.plist

    These dont look as if they have anything to do with System Preferences though ??

    Just a thought

    Cheers
    EDIT
    AHHHHH reread your post chscag lol that would be more appropriate

    Yes.

    I've also run both DW and OnyX, if that counts for anything. Cleaned house.

    So what then ?? Is it still happening ?? Do you have a Backup as well ?? Might be looking at a OS reinstall .....

    EDIT : Maybe if you have a friend with OSX you could get the Energy Saver Preference Pane off them and trash the other one ?? Just a thought... PM me with your addy and ill send you one and see if that helps some ..
