When oh when will Ubuntu-Mint-etc prioritize the endlessly running wide open cpu problem on laptops? I will not come near a distro that cooks my laptop. There are a zillion posts on this and ubuntu's forums about this major showkiller bug. But it persists and persists release after release and never gets addressed.
Powernowd and it's friends in the repo are installed by default but are useless. I've seen no solutions offered in the forums that make a dent in this problem.
Note: It's not dust - rpm distros work perfectly with laptops. CPU throttling works fine on them.
Let me be clear: Mint is terrific and is my fav............... for my destkop. Maybe this can be solved by someone so laptops can use it too.
Is there any hope of solving this probem?
I edited configuration file in /etc/modules. I added these lines:
Then I installed tool kpowersave, enabled it at startup and set dynamic processor usage.
