I doubt it. Seems unlikely they'd ever get the CPUs running slow enough to step down the power. Be very good if they did, however; if Apple isn't green enough, Second Life running everywhere at full power consumption with no users is about as non-green as one can get.
Incidentally, I found one sim where I have land (Mosh) that's running Bluesteel. It has 5 main and 13 child agents at the moment, and over 13ms -- more than half the frame -- is Spare Time, as usual.
