I've upgrated amd64 embedded 0.7.1 Shere to 0.7.2 Sabanda and noticed that now the power daemon seems to be very reluctant to lower the cpu frequency. The frequency seems to be almost static 1673 Mhz when idle, it goes sometimes briefly to 1245 or 1045 Mhz but almost immediately returns to 1673 Mhz. The frequency dropped easily to 800 Mhz with version 0.7.1.

My setup has a Intel Atom D510 1.66 Mhz dual core processor.

    all power usage does depends on the services you do run and the hardware you do use, also notice that the atoms are not suge great power performers in my opinion.
