    Does anyone know if there is a handy little app that I can download to shut down one of my processors in my G5?

    Install CHUD Tools from the developer portion of your install discs.

    i've been testing with that it even when you turn off an entire processor there is no heat/power usage reduction.

    That is because you can not turn a processor off.
    You can only tell the OS to stop using it.

    Why do you need to turn off a processor? Are you takeing your computer on a camping trip and need to save power?
