Re: 3x+ battery life

I am merging all power down functionalities to Tlp. I think most arch users will benefit from this.

Re: 3x+ battery life

For those using pcie_aspm=force. You might get lower power usage if you remove that entry.

Take a look at this: https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/4/7/781

I've had about 11W in idle. Now, after removing that flag, I've got 8.5W

Nice to hear as TLP is probably most complete and easy power management systems for Linux. When can we expect this?

What should we be using in the meantime? (since powerdown seems to have disappeared already).

Once merged, will TLP maintain all the defaults currently present in powerdown?

Re: 3x+ battery life

@diesel47 TLP literally does the same thing as powerdown plus a few more features.  Give it a go if powerdown is broken for you.  TLP is also actively being developed.

@taylorchu thank you for this, which many of us has used throughout the years.

Re: 3x+ battery life

Hello, do you prefer tlp over laptop-mode-tools? Are they similar?

I liked powerdown for its simplicity! Thank you taylorchu!
