    how does one use powerd?

    put:

    powerd_enable=”YES”

    In your /etc/rc.conf, and it will run with defaults. If you look at the man page, it’ll tell you what other values you can put in, though the defaults are sensible.

    Works great! Much better than running the temperature to 85 and having the clock slam down to half-speed permanently ;-)
