battery runtime decreased extremly since switching system

Postby helgrind13 on Fri Mar 08, 2013 11:42 am

hey guys,

i ve changed the system from windows 7 ultimate to linux mint... since that moment my battery runtime decreased from about 2,5hours to like just 1 hour!!!how is that possible? i ve installed all updates and the newest mint system


do i have to install new drivers, or what am i doing? isn't that a bit strange, because window is so much more full of background programs and mint is soo much "lighter"

i ve found following programs: Jupiter Applet or Jupiter Applet

would you recomend it?


I am using a hewlett and packard dv6-6b55eg

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Installing laptop-mode-tools and powertop might help a bit.
