HP 530 Celeron M power management

  1. Hello,

    I have a HP 530 laptop with a Celeron M processor at 1.6 ghz, the battery has 4 cells and overall the lifetime of the laptop is quite short, for Acer notebooks there's an application that lets you reduce the processor speed and shuts down several hardware components (like the LAN card) to increase battery life, HP does not have such an application, is there a similar third party application that you can recommend for this laptop? Because Windows XP power management does not do a very good job.

    gravesent, celeron can't change it's clock and voltage. but you can replace it to Pentium-M, which can do those things :)
