Battery Drain

Post by LordSaddler » Wed Aug 29, 2018 10:29 am

I have a problem using Mint 19 Cinnamon on my notebook. Placing mouse on battery icon, i have this result:
- Manjaro say 7 hours;
- Mint 19 Cinnamon from live usb say 7 hours;
- Mint 19 XFCE Installed say 7 hours;
- Mint 19 Cinnamon Installed on my pc say 4 hours (and actually it seems that it is draining too fast);
Why? I am using TLP on installed system. Is this a Cinnamon problem?

You can run several commands in order to verify the config of tlp:

Code: Select all

sudo tlp-stat -s 
- system information and TLP status

Code: Select all

sudo tlp-stat -c 
- TLP configuration

Code: Select all

sudo tlp-stat 
- power settings

Code: Select all

sudo tlp-stat -b
- battery information

There some other which can help too like:

Code: Select all

sudo tlp-stat -t
- Temperatures

Code: Select all

sudo tlp-stat -p
- Processor Data

Code: Select all

sudo tlp-stat -w
- warnings

Based on this you can see where is the problem.
