10.6: Use wake-on-demand to help conserve energy
Authored by: chadvonnau on Jan 07, '10 01:39:06AM

A workaround for laptops is to just turn the brightness all the way down to 0 before sleeping the computer.

The problem w/ this is that when you come back later, it is _very_ easy to forget about the brightness being down. On a few occasions I've cursed my computer for dying and restarted it when it was just the brightness being down.
