Good point on power consumption. I'll see if I can find powertop in AUR. The 
instrumentation on my laptop sucks - few sensors, but my best sensors are my 
hands. The CPU and GPU are located in the left side of my laptop and you can 
feel the temp changes through the left palmrest. (best sensor of all :)
