Different Categories of MacBook Models

Great News for everyone with an Intel MacBook without Thunderbolt 3. Starting with AlDente 1.17

The behavior of AlDente when the MacBook is in Sleep or powered off

For this category of MacBook models, we use a different technical pathway to control the charging behavior. The benefit of this method is that AlDente does not need to be running in order for the Charge Limit to take effect. Therefore, the features Stop Charging While Sleeping and Stop Charging When Powered Off are not needed.
