I've tried it at v0.9 or so. It works quite well, boot time is good and PBI installers roxxxx. FreeBSD also shuts down very quickly ;) Once I had 5 minutes of battery power left while using SuSE 10.0, when I began shutdown, that moron started rebuilding /etc/preload.d. Who the hell "invented" this ?
I still can't find out how to set up performance throttling, though ;) (powernow k7)

Isn't powerd working? Put something like this in your rc.conf:

powerd_enable="YES"
powerd_flags="-a adaptive -i 80 -r 65"

see man powerd

See if your cpu is actually supported - my desktop sempron's c&q is supported. Check if you see something like this in your dmesg:
acpi_throttle0: <ACPI CPU Throttling> on cpu0
