Would an intense ruby script activate a Mac's Turbo Boost feature?

Resque is pretty heavily used, but development seems to be stalled out at this point. In production, especially on JRuby, sidekiq is much more efficient than running a bunch of resque processes. Also, you don't need to setup a monit/god monitor for each one, you just need to run/monitor a single process. On JRuby/Rbx this single process will use all of your cores without any extra work, and will only use the memory it needs, without much waste. Also, I feel like the API for sidekiq makes a bit more sense than the one resque has, especially considering the extensions it makes to classes, actionmailer, and activerecord.
