Voodopower, I believe, is designed to use the 'speedstep' functionality of Intel mobile chipsets (like the N270 used in the 10v) - to increase battery life! HOWEVER
I read somewhere that NBI v 8.4 already does this
in a different way (using mods to the DSDT table?? which allow speedstep management in the Apple kernel to run - with no additional kexts needed!).
I am running an 10.6.4 kernel with NBI 8.4 and NO VoodooPowerMini. I found the Application CPUi somewhere which allows for display of the current CPU state - and I can see that speedtsep seems to working just fine (and battery life is significantly improved on low CPU tasks).
