Oh yes it’s nerdtime again!

Just wanted to share a quick link with you: http://www.linuxpowertop.org

Basically it’s a site that lists the common problems of applications with powersaving and provides patches for those apps.

It’s a little bit sucky that you’ll have to go on and patch stuff in order to keep the apps from polling 100 times per second and keeping your Laptop from going into an energy saving mode (or rather: keep waking him up)
