wmpower is a Window Maker dock application allowing the user to graphically see (and set) the power management status of his laptop.
Points of strength:
-It works ;-)
-Battery status display (you chose the battery)
-Both APM and ACPI kernels are supported
-On ACPI kernels you get fan status and a thermal sensor.
-Direct access to Toshiba hardware: you get fan status and LCD brightness management even without an APCI kernel
-While on battery, it can stop your fan, HD to make the battery last longer; if you have a Toshiba Laptop, it can also adjust your LCD brightness
-Fast battery charge mode: you can keep 'on battery' settings until your battery reaches 100%: this will make it recharge much faster
-no-meddling option: if you want the program to display power manamenegt status, but not to take any action
-On Toshiba laptops you can use your mouse wheel to adjust the brightness of your lcd screen
-Support for Dell laptops
-Support for Compal hardware (see README.compal)
-Support for CPU frequency scaling

-Fixed linker arguments to prevent issues compiling with -as-needed.
