Well, Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu. Yet, there is more than one Ubuntu release and there is more than one Linux Mint release. So, in order to make an educated guess why the energy consumption is so high on Linux Mint 17, it would be helpful to know this:
+ You are currently using Linux Mint 17. Which edition 32-bit ? 64-bit? Which desktop environment?
+ The Ubuntu you compare this to is which version exactly? 32-bit? 64-bit? Which desktop environment?
I was using Ubuntu 64-bit (14.04).
I recently installed Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon.
