I have been looking around the internet for the past few hours trying to find a pendent for powermizer under Linux, but I haven't really found an answer!
So my question is: how to save power with an nvidia 7600go under Linux?
I noticed the display of my dell xps m1210 with a go 7400 'shivers' sometimes,like a resyncing (e.g after idling, when I start a gpu-'intensive' application) and that when I use compiz, it is noticeably slower (but not much) for a second and then goes fluidly (after some 'gpu idling' too) so there may be some form of performance scaling active.
I can't reproduce neither behavior on my W7J with the same card though...
if you want, enable coolbits (look in nvidia's readme) and underclock with nvidia-settings.
IIRC you can easily automate it with nvidia-settings command line and some acpi scripting.

To know recursion, you must first know recursion.
Hate to end your search like this, but powerrmizer doesn't exist in linux. The graphics chipset is essentially stuck in the mode last set by windows, or whatever the default mode was when the notebook was shipped.
You'd think they'd get that up and running before cool-bits ya know.
God damn, this sucks!
I am currently really thinking about switching to windows xp on my laptop!
