A script to set CPU processing speed
Authored by: Azark on Mar 03, '05 12:21:36PM
I made a few pmset shell scripts in OnMyCommand for that purpose. Not only CPU, but dim screen, etc.

You just have to add pmset to the sudoers file to be able to use it without password, tip here.

Typing 'pmset' alone in terminal will give you an easy view of its usage.

A few examples:

High: sudo /usr/bin/pmset -c reduce 1
Low: sudo /usr/bin/pmset -c reduce 0
Auto: sudo /usr/bin/pmset -c reduce 0 dps 1

sudo /usr/bin/pmset -c sleep 10

-c means "connected to charger" you can change it to -b (battery), -u (UPS), -a (all)
