Install TLP - linux advanced power management for laptops

TLP (TLP - Linux Advanced Power Management) is more progressive management utility battery-for Linux, which applies different settings automatically when you log on and every time you change the power source, depending on your distro and hardware.

Earlier I wrote about this utility in the article "the acceleration of Linux mint and similar". In a new article will touch on a little bit more information about this utility.

Settings depending on the Power Source

Additional functions

Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

Before installing TLP, there are several conditions which it is desirable to perform:
First. If you added some power saving settings/scripts, etc., delete them or TLP may not work properly;
Second. Remove laptop-mode-tools package

sudo apt-get remove laptop-mode-tools


Now open a terminal, copy and run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw

TLP does not have a GUI, so after installing the energy efficiency of your laptop/netbook will start after the next and all subsequent logons. But not to reload it now, run the following command:

sudo tlp start

And also there are some packages with additional features that can be installed from the software manager or run the following command:

sudo apt-get install smartmontools ethtool

And some additional packages only for Lenovo ThinkPad laptops:

sudo apt-get install tp-smapi-dkms acpi-call-tools
