This is my favorite GUI text editor for Linux, I use the Windows version all the time too. I also covered this topic here.

I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

Laptop Mode Tools saves power by spinning down hard drives, and in addition, it can be configured to tweak all sorts of other power-related things.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

There is support for auto turn this mode when the PC is powered by a battery. Also included support for various power management features, such as starting and stopping services, depending on the power mode, automatic falling asleep, if the battery level is very low, setting blanking the screen in the terminal and X11.

Laptop Mode Tools uses the ability of the Linux kernel - Laptop Mode, which can also be used to conserve power on workstations and servers.

Note. Before installing Laptop Mode Tools, you need to remove in order to avoid conflicts packages utility TLP (if it is installed on your system). 

sudo tlp stop sudo apt-get remove tlp tlp-rdw

Installation into Linux Mint:

sudo apt-get install laptop-mode-tools

If you could not install, you can add the repository

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install laptop-mode-tools

or download the .DEB package from HERE

Utility Laptop Mode Tools does not have icon, so run the command in the terminal to open it: 

sudo lmt-config-gui

Good Luck!!!
