I was wondering what tricks do experienced Arch users apply to get the best performance (including the HDD settings and power saving techniques)?
Please share your experience....
I have a Samsung Laptop, with broken BIOS for ACPI support. I had to modify my BIOS DSDT by hand to make ACPI working (details are here http://www.azeemarif.co.nr).

i personally use cpudyn for HDD spindown and laptop-mode-tools (see my repo) for kernel mode power saving... then again I don't run on battery that often
