D.Net clients and Waterfall/CPUidle are mutually exclusive. These CPU
cooling programs use idle time to power down the CPU, but RC5 uses up
idle time. As far as I know the CPU coolers don't even get a 50-50
arrangement like if you run prime-net & RC5 - they just don't get any
chance to work.
And they do work. If you have a Pentium-class CPU or better, CPU
coolers can both cool the CPU and reduce power consumption. Typically
people report an increase of 30-mins to portable battery life.
I personally believe that there should be a CPU cooler plug-in for the
D.Net client, plus a scheduler and a battery usage detector for
Win95/98 portables. (When connected to power run RC5DES, when running
from batteries use CPU cooler)
