I'm going to assume you're a Windows user trying to overcome a 
retarded Windows design flaw that has the CPU do a whole lot of 
nothing at full steam instead of using HLT instructions to let the 
CPU *really* not do anything when it's idle.

Linux doesn't have this problem, the kernel has what you're looking 
for by default.
