[Fwd: Re: [LAU] use your pc as an music player (and safe energy)]


I'm wondering what are the possibilities to safe energy for an pc as music player in Debian. Are there different kernels for it like Mandriva seems to have? Other tips?

Laptop versions of kernels tend to want to save power to increase 
battery life.  Distributions may offer different versions of kernels 
for use, even within the same distribution release.  For instance, 
Mandriva has laptop, multi-processor, server, large RAM size, 
desktop, and multimedia kernels, plus some permutations of those.
For listening to compressed music with a player, the laptop kernel 
should save power and be adequate for the music.  Having power saving 
hardware, e.g. super efficient power supply and very few add-in 
cards, can help a lot too.
