Re: estd and P-States

Thanks for your quick answer Jukka. I plan to code some custom scripts
to deal with 'estd' for ac/bat modes.

Ok, I've activated 'acpicpu' in the kernel, but now... what? :) Sorry,
I don't know how to deal with. I can see it in 'dmesg':

acpicpu0 at acpi0 (CPU0): ACPI CPU
acpicpu1 at acpi0 (CPU1): ACPI CPU

And I've seen in a web page that someone did:

        sysctl -w machdep.idle-mechanism=mwait

But in my case I always get the same response:

        sysctl -w machdep.idle-mechanism=mwait
        sysctl: mwait: string too long

I've tried it with 'halt' and 'hlt' values, but no luck.

Thanks in adavance,
