EE Times offers up an article on a new idea: operating transistors in a lower-power mode. The idea being to use up less leaked power, or at least put it to better use than just generating a small amount of heat. Of course, it has limitations...

But operating transistors at voltages below Vt is likely to difficult and its use will not suitable for all circuits or application cases. A key factor is that it comes at the expense of frequency performance, which can be a problem for digital applications. It is easier to apply to low-frequency analog but transistor operation it is also strongly dependent on manufacturing variations in such things as oxide thickness, junction depth, and body doping, which could make analog performance hard to calibrate.
