has someone tried to port the Intel powertop tool  
( to FreeBSD? If not, is someone willing  
to have a look at it, or should I put it on our ideas list?

The tool monitors the power consumption of a system and shows which  
part of the system is the reason for not saving power (so it makes  
sense to run this on a mostly idle system to find the cause of wasting  
power; some applications are already fixed to be more power friendly).


When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him
keep her.
