I've been looking into underclocking my 1000HE. It gets "only" 5.5 hours right now when using wifi, I feel if I underclocked I could get significantly more. While it included a program to do so in the windows install, I flattened and installed Fedora Core 10 instead.

I was wondering where there is a utility that will let me adjust my 1000HE's FSB... I'm running linux (FC10) and can't find any... I saw mention of a "frequency scale applet" but I googled with no luck (as well as searched a bit with yum). So far everything I found has been windows only.

If anyone knows of a utility that can do this, please let me know.

Look for heat management software, software that turns the fan off when it isn't required. (The atom needs very little cooling)

Those are more along the lines of power management (IE making the HD spin down when not in use, auto dimming screen, etc) which I've tried, but thanks.
