    I have a 12" powerbook that I would like to undervolt in order to get better battery life and perhaps get the fans to run less frequently. What are the software options for me? I am running OS X Tiger, however I may upgrade to Leopard if necessary.

    Thanks.

    Coolbook. Could never figure out how to use the damn thing myself but I've heard it works great.

    Well, under Energy Saver in System Prefs you'll find a processor performance selector that you can set to reduced for the battery. If you're looking for fan control, try G4 Fan Control.
