Anytime I ask a Mono or Beagle developer about the Beagle app they tell me all kinds of great things. Anytime I ask a regular user (which there tend to be more of) there complain about how much it sucks resources, power, etc.
Well both parties might be interested in this. I just installed powertop (nice work intel) and the first thing it suggests (verbatim):
Suggestion: Disable or remove 'beagle' from your system. Beagle is the program that indexes for easy desktop search, however it's not very efficient and costs a significant amount of battery life.
Any suggestions from either side?
