wmpower description
wmpower is a Window Maker dock app that allows the user to graphically see (and set) the power management status of his laptop.

Installation:

./configure
make
su root (if you are not root already)
make install

Here are some key features of "wmpower":

· Battery status display (you choose 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, lin-seti service 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 for temperature and fan status
· Support for Compal hardware
· CPU frequency scaling support. .

wmsm.app (Popularity: ) : wmsm.app is Window Maker system monitor dockable application. I’m not the author of that program. I’m only the maintainer of SlackBuild for it.. .
wmnet (Popularity: ) : WMnet is a little WindowMaker dockapp network monitor I wrote for Linux.

It was originally inspired by that funky program 'tleds' that blinks your keyboard LED's in response to net traffic, but its a lot more entertaining than that nowadays.
