http://askubuntu.com – I am a completely new user to Linux/Ubuntu! I looked through tips on battery issues and powertop but failed to find clear tips on how to tweak powertop except for Toggle Tunable. Could someone look through the log and advise me on what should be done to reduce power consumption? My laptop is 1 year old! I also found that powertop periodically switches my mouse of although I never allowed it in Toggle Tunable. Power Consumption Summary 363,4 wakeups/second, 2,4 GPU ops/second, 0,0 VFS ops/sec, 10,0 GFX wakes/sec and 11,8% CPU use Power est. Usage Events/s Category Des (HowTos)
