A tool has been developed to look at power consumption, PowerTOP:


I have been able to run it on the XO- beta 2 machine I have. However, the really 
interesting information about power consumption isn't available. The code 
attempts to read the ACPI information (/proc/acpi/processor/) for C state 
information. Is there some other place that this type of information would be 
available on XO machine?
