Well, I mainly use it because my iBooks HD gets too hot these days. I
could'nt tell you how much battery it saves.

I use laptop-mode + cpudyn. The combination works quite well for me.

You have to fine tune the daemons running on your system, because one
single cache miss will make the disk spin up (cups, postfix, ntpd,
sysklogd, etc. are daemons to watch closely).
