Thread: Using PowerTOP 2.6 Saves Power, Extends Battery Life On Ubuntu 14.04

  1. #21


    a bit off-topic, but does anyone know how to keep the parameters modified by powertop between reboots ? I don't reboot that frequently (I'm on Manjaro), but I would have to get powertop automatically set the settings I want.

    Also powertop recommends enabling powersaving for my wifi card, but doing so makes the connection unstable and spams the system log with errors.
