Chip maker Intel (INTC) has announced the launch of LessWatts.org 
, an open source community site dedicated to optimizing the power use of Linux servers. The project was announced at this week’s Intel Developers Forum, and features a list of projects 
that address energy efficiency issues on Linux, as well as tips and tricks 
for fine-tuning your system.
Mikel Larson at Hardware vs. Software 
provides a good overview of the project and some recent history on power management efforts on Linux. “With LessWatts, Intel is seeking to open up power management from large data centers, where server power consumption imposes limits on a center’s growth and has significant financial and environmental costs to mobile users who are constrained by power consumption limits, as battery space is continually squeezed with the overall reduction in size of mobile devices,” Mikel notes.
