Hey, I just installed fluxbox mint on my laptop and was trying to enable a number of power options. I found that although I could run commands to enable power management on various parts of my system they won't stick. So, I figured I could throw them in a script and just have them run every boot. Problem is, every example for starting scripts @ boot I can find on the internet seems to use a startup manager of some sort (which I don't have!) And, to make it a little more fun, sudo will NOT work without a password. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Edit: I am specifically trying to enable
Sata power management
hd audio power save
extend filesystem writeback to 30 seconds
increase wlan power timeout
They were the couple of optimizations that powertop quoted me
