Strange button on my MacBook Pro

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. On the same side as the USB ports there's a button that sits flush, next to what look like 8 LED lights.

    What does it do?

    I'd read the instructions, but I'm a bloke.
  2. Press it and see
  3. I believe it tells you how full the battery is, on older macbooks it's on the bottom.
  4. 8 green LED's light up. Nothing else appears to have occurred.

    Have I nuked China?
  5. Is it this one you are referring to?

  6. Ah, I see. Thanking you.

    Slightly miffed about the China thing not happening though.
  7. Tis. Lack of nuclear signage on that one as well. Tsk.
  8. Not got a Macbook Pro, but on my MacBook I have a button on the bottom next to a set of LEDs. Press it and it'll tell you how much power is in the battery. You can do this without the machine being on, for a quick check.
  9. Thanks for that Trigger.
  10. Thanks all, much appreciated.
  11. I've got a Macbook Pro and there are loads of buttons under the lid with the pretty apple picture on the top. Can anyone tell me what they do please??

    I've also got a hole in my tummy - if I undo it will my arrse fall off???
  12. I've got a Macbook Pro.
  13. Show off, i've only got a lowly macbook white

    I'm going to show off now - I've got a 27 inch iMac - but it's a bugger to carry about!
