Title:

Can I shut down 2 of the 4 cores?

Text:

I was just wondering, since the MacBook Pro is a quad-core computer, if anyone knows a way to basically sleep 2 of the 4 cores to get better battery life, or even if this would help with battery life, since quad-cores seem to be pretty power hungry. I still need the quad-core power occasionally, but not while I am in school or taking notes throughout the day.

Thanks
