I used Fuduntu for a while where I came across this great applet that just enhances your machine's power consumption and extends laptop battery life.
Here is the description from their website (http://www.jupiterapplet.org/)
"Jupiter is a light weight power and hardware control applet for Linux. It is designed to improve battery life of a portable Linux computer by integrating with the operating system and changing parameters of the computer based on battery or powered connection."
I have installed it from their website & it's just working fine with Stella/Centos 6.3
Attached it the RPM I found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/jupiter/
since the project's website download section is down by this date.

I'm really glad to see Jupiter no longer depending on dubious technologies such as Mono (a Microsoft .NET implementation).
Their RPM seems to be working out of the box just fine, nice find! Maybe I'll include it in the next release.
