PowerTOP is an incredibly handy open-source utility of Intel's that had first premiered a year ago. As of this week, however, PowerTOP has been ported over to OpenSolaris. PowerTOP 1.0 was released for OpenSolaris, which is more or less an equivalent to the Linux version (which is currently at v1.9). This power conservation utility is for both x86 and SPARC architectures. This OpenSolaris port does, however, have some outstanding bugs and currently it doesn't have the power-savings recommendation feature. If you're interested, check out its project page.
