Einstein and EXOSAT satellite observations of X-ray emission from the planetary nebulae A63 and LoTr 5 are reviewed. Both of these systems contain binary central stars. No flux was detected from A63 (central star UU Sge). LoTr 5 (central star IN Com) is a previously unreported X-ray emitter; it showed no statistically significant X-ray variability. Three models for the source of the X-ray emission in such systems are considered in the light of these and previous results.
