I'm new in Ubuntu 13.04 and wondering what I should do to get the lowest power consumption settings for an Ivy Bridge CPU.

You can use powertop, which is not specifically for Ivy Bridge, but in general will help. powertop overview To install, open a terminal and enter

sudo apt-get install powertop

It will give you some interactive way to look high power consumers.
