10.5: Monitor and disable CPU cores in 10.5
Authored by: tbolioli on Nov 06, '07 08:40:25AM

You won't save energy or battery life by turning off a core (and do anything other than let it sit there idle the whole time). You may save instantaneous power in certain circumstances, but if anything, you will end up using more energy over time because shutting down a core will rob you of a variety of performance and energy benefits.
