Depends on the hardware and OS, the only one I know of that was supposed to make a difference was 'Rain', but that was only for AMD machines pre XP. General opinion appears to be that XP power management is pretty good and the add ons don't achieve much.

Why not try a laptop cooling pad, I believe a few forum members have these and rate them highly, quite cheap to boot.
