comment What is the Mac equivalent of Windows' Power Plans' Maximum Processor State?
and if there is no usage over 20%, capping it to say 20% won't have any effect then, will it? I think the only real power management you should be concerned wether ur running desecrate graphics or integrated.

comment What is the Mac equivalent of Windows' Power Plans' Maximum Processor State?
okay you lost me, but let me try to better explain what i'm trying to say: opening chrome (for example) would require a certain set of computations. The amount needed WILL NOT change based on any kind of power saving feature. Limiting is access to system resources will cause it to do the same exact computations, but over a longer period of time. It should be noted that there is overhead that runs regardless of how much CPU usage is occurring, such as your LCD backlight, hard drive spinning, etc.

you have virus scanning… what? and the computations performed to start chrome wouldn't change in either scenario, your just stretching them out over time

comment Can I move the top menu bar?
why would you do this? The menu bar has no task bar (application launching) functionality, and menus of windows/linux apps are usually at the top, so doesn't it make sense for the menu bar to be on the top?

comment How can I disable Spaces in Lion?
You say that you hate how full screen apps are put all the way to the right, well as of 10.7.2, you can rearrange the order of spaces so that full screen apps can be directly to the right of the main space
