Also note you can
control your processor speed by simply clicking the batter (or AC
adaptor) icon by the clock (specific settings are made in control panel).
Under Linux, acpitool can give you the temp and battery info from a
shell prompt. gkrellm can be used for temp info in X. I use cpufreqd
and cpufreq-set to adjust my CPU speed (I usually leave it set to
On-Demand or Performance), be sure to compile speedstep-centrino as a
module if it isn't in your kernel.
