Hi Yankee, I had an ion MB I found to be very good.
I am assuming that your other machine is also an atom based device?
gives me ondemand conservative powersave userspace performance on my system, does it give you the same?
Not sure but this is an in depth article that might help youhttp://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-cpufreq-2/
Combined with this part cpufreq_performance of herehttp://blog.peacon.co.uk/wiki/Enabling_power_management_on_Debian
I have found the following in /etc/rc.d/init.d/cpufreq and have to wonder if changing the value highlighted in red to the the maximum would work.
I should point out that I have reached (and probably well exceeded) the limit of my knowledge so hope I am not sending you on the wrong path. So please only try this if you are desperate and don't mind blowing up your machine okay? 8-)
There is probably a lot simpler way but I have spent the last 20 minutes looking but not found anything that I can translate to PCLiunxos
