This would probably require you to build your own bios/operatingsystem/both), would make your computer way to slow to do anything. RAM memory also is one of the least of your conserns if you want to save power. you should start looking at the efficiency of your PSU, If you have a cheap one with < 80% efficiency you might want to replace it with a more expensive high efficiency one ( > 90 %) . You could also look for some programs which automaticly underclock the processor or disable cores when it isn't fully used, remove your graphics and sound cards ( if you have a graphics/soundcard on your motherboard).
