Default PowerMizer (low voltage) Mode for linux/freebsd

Certain cards (NVida Geforce 4) for laptops have a special powersave mode (up to 40% more battery life time). Under Windows it is referd to as PowerMizer. Seemingly it tells the card to work at 1 Volt (I guess you loose some speed for that?).

Does anyone have an Idea, if this is implemented for Linux/Freebsd? Or how to do implement it?

I have the 1.0-6113 freebsd driver (and nvidia-setting) on FreeBSD 5.2 on a dell Latidute D800, with GeForce 4 (I can access the PowerMizer under Windows, but need FreeBSD). Just switching of 3d doesnt seem to help.

I would be glad for any Idea, or information

Thanks Martin
