       apmiser - power-saving daemon for ThinkPads

       apmiser [OPTIONS]

       apmiser	is a power expenditure management daemon for IBM ThinkPad lap‐
       top computers.

       apmiser periodically checks your CPU utilization.  If  the  machine  is
       using  battery  power  or is charging the battery and apmiser sees that
       you are using a lot of CPU, it switches the machine into "high"	power-
       expenditure  mode  for  as  long	 as  required,	then  switches back to
       "auto"matic power-expenditure mode.  Some users have  found  that  this
       yields  a  better combination of performance and battery longevity than
       one gets with one of the power expenditure modes on its own.

	      Detach from the controlling tty and run in the background
       --help Display information about the options
	      Set the CPU usage level above which to run at full speed
	      Set the CPU usage level below which to start saving power
	      Send all messages to the syslog facility
	      Set how many seconds later the CPU usage should still matter
	      Set how strongly recent CPU usage should be favored
	      Report all power expenditure level changes
	      Report the version number of the apmiser program
       apmiser should be written in C and should use  libsmapidev  instead  of
       tpctl to set the power expenditure level.
