Thanks mate, I think I corrected them.

Uses lower frequencies, these values (as from manual) specifya at what load level to change current speed to lower or higher value, default values higher the clock at lower load and the same for lower clock. The interval specifies how often the clock speed will change, many processes lower down their CPU usage for short period of time, with 500ms (0.5 second) you will not be able to "catch" these chances to save power, with 100 (or even 50 but you use more CPU power for polling) you are able to higher frequency much faster, in both sides.

And that was the purpose of #, I just forgot to remove sudo.

Thanks for corrections mate

I added power consumption of my CPU depends on MHz used.

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
