No powersave governor on CPU Freq list (Gnome Shell extension)

I installed cpupower and CPU Freq extension for Gnome Shell. However, I have only two governors on the list: ondemand and performance.

Why there's no powersave? Is it because my bios or processor (Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T6600 @ 2.20GHz × 2) doesn't support it?

Re: No powersave governor on CPU Freq list (Gnome Shell extension)

I found out that CPU Freq gets governors list by running cpupower frequency-info -g:

~ $ cpupower frequency-info -g
analyzing CPU 0:
ondemand performance

Do I have to load some modules or install packages? I installed powertop, but nothing has happened.

Re: No powersave governor on CPU Freq list (Gnome Shell extension)

yes, only ondemand and performance are loaded automatically.

for powersave you need to modprobe cpufreq_powersave .

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
