Adjusts CPU according to the system load

'Autothrottle' is a daemon that throttles your CPU according to the system load. It can be used with both ACPI and CPUfreq throttling. You can also specify different profiles for battery and AC power. When the daemon receives SIGHUP, it checks for AC power and alters the profile. This can be used e.g. from acpid when receiving AC events.
