Here are some key features of "wmpower":

· Battery status display (you choose the battery);

· 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.

Similar software (Popularity: ) : 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.
