I'm going to assume you're a Windows user trying to overcome a

Linux doesn't have this problem, the kernel has what you're looking
for by default.
The guy is talking about power saving, like letting the processor turn
off stuff _while_ executing HLT instructions.
I'm sorry I can't help on the question at hand, I do this with a script
(specific to the VIA KT400 chipset) that runs "setpci" with some special
parameters to turn on/off this feature.
