    Default Kpowersave alternative in KDE4/11.1?


    I ran Opensuse 10.3/11 KDE3 on my HP laptop, and recently went back to
    Ubuntu 8.10. Opensuse runs better on this laptop than any distro ever
    has hands down. I just got my Opensuse 11.1 DVD in the mail. It is going
    to replace Ubuntu. I just can't decide between the comfortable KDE3 or
    KDE4. I've played around with the 11.1 KDE4 live CD, and the only thing
    missing for me is something to control CPU policy. With KDE3, there was
    kpowersave. I could set both CPU's to full speed. The only applet I
    could find in KDE4 was the battery monitor applet. I tried to set it to
    performance, but the CPU's still showed 800(capable of 2000). I'm I just
    misunderstanding something, or is there anternative to kpowersave?

    It seemed to stick when I changed it in system settings> advanced>
    powermanagement. It didn't change just by setting it in the panel
    applet. Thanks for the info. I guess I'll be trying KDE4 this
    weekend
