It seems it's not working. I think that the problem is due to the fact that the programs are not designed for cinnamon... :?

Re: Mint 16 Petra Freezes

If you just change the powermizer in nVidia settings it will be again set to auto after reboot.
To set the Powermizer to maximum performance at system startup just add this command to Startup Applications:

Code: Select all

nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1
