That doesn't really make too much sense.

In theory, if the CPU has a low power mode and the machine detects 
thermal issues, you could lower the temperature by periodically switching 
into the low power mode.  Some CPUs operate this way.  

However, at the moment there's no way that a low power mode will generate 
less heat than a no power mode.
