I haven't tried wmii on my laptop within the last month, but the snapshot from
about a month ago has load average of about 0.16 with wmii. (This was a 2 1/2
year old Celeron 2GHz machine.) On the desktop I don't care too much about that,
but I wasn't sure if -- given that load average doesn't necessarily represent the
amount of CPU usage --- whether this would have a noticeable affect on battery
run down rate. I meant to do some experiments to look at this, but I haven't been
on any trips recently :-(

cheers, dave
