[request]tlp - linux advance power management

Postby kurotsugi » 23 Jan 2014 17:45

quoted from the homesite,
TLP – Linux Advanced Power Management

TLP brings you the benefits of advanced power management for Linux without the need to understand every technical detail. TLP comes with a default configuration already optimized for battery life, so you may just install and forget it. Nevertheless TLP is highly customizable to fulfil your specific requirements.

TLP packages are available for Arch, Debian, Fedora, Gentoo, openSUSE and Ubuntu. You're welcome if you want to package TLP for other distributions. Please take a look at the developer documentation.
this tools IMO is a great tool for laptop user and it should be a good addition for solydxk.

Thanks, they seems to work for me. I knew I would have gotten a trip to the Dean :oops: if I would have downloaded from Unbuntu. ;)

installing it...everything seems good. anyway, the default configuration is good enough but if we want to play with cpu freq and cpu gov we'll need to purge debian's cpufrequtils. tlp already have built in feature to manage them.

Installed the packages in SolydX 64. Everything seemed to function properly.
I skimmed over the documentation and there was a lot that sailed right over the old man's head. Looks like someone who wants to seriously push their hardware would benefit from this package. For ordinary laptop use I did not see anything that was a great improvement over the gui power manager that is in Xfce. Likely it is there but I didn't recognize it :?

the result depends on how you tune your default setting and modify the grub parameter (pcie_aspm=force or radeon.dpm=1 might needed). I like this tools since it had all power management related configuration in one place and could be easily configured by modifying one file. for a better result I usually use it along with 'powertop'.
