Advanced power management in OpenBSD - BSD
Mafia
This quick guide will show you how to apply better overall power management for your Desktop, enabling this will monitor your power usage and lower the CPU usage when less is needed.

First:
Code:
1 su
2 Password:
3 # sysctl hw.cpuspeed hw.setperf
4 hw.cpuspeed=2100
5 hw.setperf=100
6 apmd -C
7 # vi /etc/rc.conf

Config file:
Code:
1 pmd_flags=”-C” -If you are new please note that this is NOT all that is in this file, if it is then you probably typed your vi command wrong

Last:
Code:
1 # sysctl hw.cpuspeed hw.setperf
2 hw.cpuspeed=1050
3 hw.setperf=0

As you can see your system is now monitoring your usage to balance out the CPU output.

Yet another thread that is making me want to give BSD a try. I just might have too.
