And if one is going to do that, don't forget that you can tell powerd which type of algorithm to use. I believe there's thee, basically max performance, max battery life and a blend.vermaden said:FreeBSD supports Intel's Speedstep a lot better then Linux.
You will need to add [cmd=]powerd_enable="YES"[/cmd] to /etc/rc.conf file and start the daemon with [cmd=]/etc/rc.d/powerd start[/cmd] command.

I'd look at /etc/defaults/rc.conf for more information. I bevieve that's where I found it, unfortunately I'm not in FreeBSD at the moment to check for sure.
The only fly in the ointment is that you need to make sure that acpi is working properly for this to actually work.
Yes, I'd go to that portion of the handbook. The fixes go from having FreeBSD lie to the hardware about what OS it is to disassembling and debugging the DSDT.Android1 said:If ACPI does not work after the installation, are there any tricks to get it working?
powerd_enable="YES" # Run powerd to lower our power usage.
powerd_flags="-a adaptive" # Flags to powerd (if enabled).
