Well, there are small things like turning off window animations and auto sync that can help. If you want to get more serious you could drop your max CPU clock speed to 800mhz (you'll sacrifice performance), or if you want to get extremely serious you could undervolt using Steve's kernal. I am currently experimenting with undervolting and will post some stable voltages to use once I find them.

The two biggest things I've found are lower your screen brightness and undervolt the processor at the 100mhz (idle) clock speed. I think mine stock was around 950mv and I've gotten it down to around 800mv. That way the device uses even less power when it's sitting idly by.
