First off, I would like to say that I am a complete newbie both in using Linux and this forum, so im not sure if this is the right place to post this.

Now, I recently installed OpenSuse 11.1 on my laptop and I was wondering if there is any piece of software out there that would give me something similiar to power plans ? So i can change the performance of my laptop by reducing the battery usage ?
Because on Suse it only shows me the remaining battery life and thats it.
