    Does anyone know if the stock kernel on the DInc underclocks the cpu when it has little or no lo load?

    Underclock? Well it sits idle at something low like ~250mhz or something. If there is a high load, the CPU will be used more, if there is little to no load, I'm positive that it idles at a low mhz.

    That's what 'idle' means.
