    slots and signals?

    Does anyone know if C++11 has the notion (or something similar) of 'slots' and 'signals' used by Qt? I was hopping that the new standard will add enough run-time features to incorporate all those...

    Of course it is distro related. Aside from kernel and power profile settings (which is again a distro decision), the way the user-land behaves (and choices of packages) has a major impact in energy...

    rolling release

    Turning Ubuntu into a rolling release (as this proposal seems to suggest will happen eventually), is a good thing. Seems to have been triggered for the wrong reasons though, but anyway.

    What is it...

    N9 was received with enthusiasm when announced (and rightfully so), but has it been actually released anywhere yet? It will not be released in US or UK (among other big markets) and the latest news...

    what power management options do you use? can you list them for us?

    I have an nvidia chip and the driver itself causes more wakeups than your entire system (even with the on-demand vblank)

    Fair enough. As for Unity, if you check that article, you'll see that Unity is not the culprit, since the 'classic' Gnome desktop is even worse.

    fewt,

    Have you noticed any difference when moving from 10.10 to 11.04 on the settings affecting power management. How do you explain the results Tom's Hardware got when comparing the two in terms...
  10. DPMS off, display?

    Michael,

    Since this is a desktop you are testing, is the display hooked up on the power meter as well when testing the effect of DPMS off? The first graph doesn't show any measurable difference (I...

    Exactly!!!

    and as someone else pointed out, looking at the first graph, it looks like a difference in how the speedstep is being used, i.e. enabled post 2.6.34 and tune/tweaked afterwords. Seems...

    Thanks Michael!
  13. 2.6.24

    Michael,

    Do you have any results on older kernels, like 2.6.24 for instance. This was the kernel on Hardy Haron 8.04 and also the one used by WebOS until now (recently switched to 2.6.29).

    Why?...

    my understanding is that 'power consumption' is a colloquial term that means 'energy'. You are definitely are thinking of 'energy' (Wh), and on that part you are right, but I think he meant power...

    now, correct me if I'm wrong, but in theory this could (eventually) run with hardware acceleration, by layering it on top of OpenGL or OpenCL, for proprietary drivers. Right?
  18. dedicate a couple release cycles to power management

    I seriously believe that Linus should consider dedicating a couple of kernel release cycles to power management alone. Almost entirely accept only patches that tackle directly or indirectly power...

    distro packages?

    nice choice of name by the way. "Skia". I presume it's the Greek word for 'highlight' (in this context. More...
