I'm developing a DAPP in a laptop. I setup a private test blockchain with one node to develop locally and do not have to spend real ethers.
It works fine, but when I start mining, the laptop gets noisy like a plane and the batteries get low too fast.
I'm asking if exists any trick to just mine slowly without consuming my batteries.
Right now, I'm mining about one block per second. It would be also good to mine one every 10-15 second or so. (Like the frontier chain).
