The current kernel won't properly enable the "DOZE" mode when idle on
the 7410. I'll fix that asap in my tree. That will lower a bit the
power consumtion and heat. It's still more than what MacOS consumes,
but there are several reasons why I beleive we can't get any better
without some more drastic changes that won't be done right now.
