iBook and heat production


I have an iBook2.2 with debian woody, running a 2.4.20benh Kernel. Well, the 
iBook is known for its spare use of energy. Certainly true. But of course the 
hardware depends on features of the OS to support minimal energy usage. While 
Linux is definitely not bad I got the impression that MacOS X is still doing 
a little bit better. The reason I'm thinking this is that the surface left to 
the trackpad is noticeable warmer when running Linux.  Maybe I'm missing 
something? Some setting besides that in /proc/cpufrequ to reduce energy 
comsuption a little bit further?
