Bad news to report...

Tonight I was watching something on Youtube for about 5 mins in and it
shut off on me again. :(

The odd thing is, I watched several videos the other day, with no
problem.  I wonder if the stuff in /etc/rc.local is actually getting
parsed.  Here is what I have:

# Powernowd is causing problems...
/etc/init.d/powernowd stop
# Use ondemand instead of powernowd...
sh -c 'echo -n ondemand > sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor'
# Turn off the pesky touchpad
/sbin/rmmod psmouse

Does this look right?  Do I need & at the end?

Tx,
Trae
