       apmiser - power-saving daemon for ThinkPads


       apmiser [OPTIONS]


       apmiser  is  a  power  expenditure  management  daemon for IBM ThinkPad
       laptop computers.

       apmiser periodically checks your CPU utilization.  If  the  machine  is
       using  battery  power  or is charging the battery and apmiser sees that
       you are using a lot of CPU, it switches the machine into "high"  power-
       expenditure  mode  for  as  long  as  required,  then  switches back to
       "auto"matic power-expenditure mode.  Some users have  found  that  this
       yields  a  better combination of performance and battery longevity than
       one gets with one of the power expenditure modes on its own.

              Detach from the controlling tty and run in the background
       --help Display information about the options
              Set the CPU usage level above which to run at full speed
              Set the CPU usage level below which to start saving power
              Send all messages to the syslog facility
              Set how many seconds later the CPU usage should still matter
              Set how strongly recent CPU usage should be favored
              Report all power expenditure level changes
              Report the version number of the apmiser program


       apmiser should be written in C and should use  libsmapidev  instead  of
       tpctl to set the power expenditure level.
