How do I "disable hardware components" for power savings?

The Rockbox manual for my Sansa Clip Plus has the following section:

Optimising battery runtime

Rockbox offers a lot of settings that have high impact on the battery runtime of your
player. The largest power savings can be achieved through disabling unneeded hardware
components for some of those there are settings available. Another area of savings is
avoiding or reducing CPU boosting through disabling computing intense features (e.g.
sound processing) or using effective audio codecs. The following provides a short
overview of the most relevant settings and rules of thumb.

I'd like to save power by "disabling unneeded hardware components". How do I do this?
