Whenever I open "About this Mac" > "More Info..." and navigate to logs there is an entry with the following content. Any idea what I can do about it?

/usr/bin/pmset -g log:

Description: Power Management logs

Size: 77 bytes

Last Modified: 5/19/11 11:26 PM

Recent Contents: Couldn't locate MessageTracer database (at path /var/log/DiagnosticMessages)

I am on a MBP with OS X 10.6.7

TIA

Are you logged in on a non-administrator account? –  Bas Leijdekkers Jun 23 '11 at 20:14
    
@Bas I coudn't see any difference even if I logged in as an admin user. –  karmatic Jun 24 '11 at 9:55
    
Do you get any result when you do "sudo pmset -g log" on the command line? (you should see some sort of log of course) –  Bas Leijdekkers Jun 24 '11 at 19:16
    
@karmatic: did you find out the problem? –  newenglander Jul 16 '12 at 7:24
