Stop MATE from resetting brightness level after restart.

I have mint mate 20 running on my hp 15-da1071ne. The problem is that the brightness resets to max brightness after every restart or logout/login. This isn't a big problem but it is kinda annoying.

Re: Mint 20 wireless just stopped working

I know it may not be the case, but did you enable UEFI secure boot lately? It will likely block the wifi driver (that was the case with me).

Re: MS Edge for Linux

I would get it alongside firefox. I have chromium edge for windows and I really like it. And tbh it is similar to firefox.

Re: Power management help.

I think I will mark this as solved. I just need to get 1 watt of saving to get on par with windows 10. Even if I couldn't 8 hours of runtime is still good enough :)

Re: Power management help.

I downloaded bumblebee from the software manager.
When I removed it, I was no longer able to disable the nvidia GPU, so I got it back again.

Re: Power management help.

Your initial post indicates you disabled the dGPU. I do not know what steps you took to do that, but that might be why the Nvidia version is not showing. For now, I have used TLP, set the hard disk drive to timeout after 5 minutes of inactivity, and set up Nvidia optimus to disable the dGPU. I disa...

Re: Power management help.

The weird thing is that when I did the tuning thing related to the dGPU the system became unstable. Fortunately a reboot fixes it.
Why isn't the inix showing the dGPU, I have the proprietary driver installed, should I be worried?

Runtime PM for the geforce gpu however is one you could try sorting out. Have you installed the proprietary nvidia driver yet? your inxi shows N/A for it.
I did install the nvidia 450 driver, why it didn't show in the informations above? Does it have something to do with Nvidia optimus?

Re: Power management help.

I am getting like 8 hours of runtime compared to about 11-12 hour on windows. I know it isn't bad but still I see room for some improvements. Using TLP and fixing optimus pushed runtime from terrible 3 hours to 8 hours. Still I'm seeking for some more tweaks to push runtimes to levels similar of win...

The windows boot manager will only recognise windows - blame MS.
This is a nasty thing to be honest.

Anyway, I figured out how to change UEFI boot order from the BIOS, problem solved!
