Try the ondemand governor. I really like it, since it doesn't need any
userspace governor. So, there's nothing to set, tune or configure.

I think I read something about newer Acers having a smart battery that
you can read out by I2C. I don't know if the 1681 has such a battery. If
I remember correctly, the 1681 is much like the 4002, which supposedly
has a smartbattery. So, for more information and possible solutions,
search for the travelmate 4000 series.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/sbs-linux/ might be one such solution,
but I haven't tried it (I have a TM6000).
