Should tuning include discussion of tuning for power management? Even
server operators are becoming aware of the need for power management
and the only really good information on it is mav's excellent wiki
page. From queries about the subject, most people really don't
understand the concepts and do the wrong thing. Frankly, FreeBSD does
the wrong thing by default, as mav pointed out.
