• how to extend battery life?

    Hello, I have a laptop asus R500V intel core i3, I just picked up the battery after regeneration and the maximum working time is less than 2 hours. Do you know any application that will extend battery life. I installed a power manager and energy management, but it did not drain the battery life. I use cinnamon.

    Thanks Adam

  • Installing tlp is really helpful (at least for me) when it comes to battery life on laptops. To install it just do sudo pacman -S tlp and to get it running all you have to do is type sudo tlp start in the terminal.

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi,

    i just saw this yesterday. It may help you.


  • thermald will save power too by holding temperature down under 45°C

  • Hello, I installed tlp and the program works, but after installing thermald something is wrong.

    The installation of the software did not bring any major effects to the battery life of about 1h40min.

  • @marnypopis

    sudo systemctl enable thermald
    sudo systemctl start thermald

    Does that help?

  • you need to start and enable with systemd:
    sudo systemctl start thermald
    sudo systemctl enable thermald

  • @manuel ha ha ha we get it again sametimeposting

  • @joekamprad That’s right! :)
    But first enable, then start, right? ;)

  • @manuel enable will take action on next bootup, so do not matter, start will start immediately…

  • There is much better but it still about 2h work

  • @marnypopis
    Sorry, can’t read Polish…

  • @marnypopis you can try starting the powermanager with LANG=C tag:

    LANG=C mate-battery-status

    mate-battery-status needs to be the programm you want to run with english (C-locale)
