Configuring powersave using kpowersave

Postby sonicbhoc » Wed Aug 29, 2007 10:13 am

Hey all. First thing, kpowersave doesn't let me configure my CPU frequency settings. Running 100% at all times is a bad thing. I really don't want to uninstall powersave though, isn't it required for kpowersave to run properly? I was told to install powernowd instead. Won't that mess up kpowersave?

Second thing is that I want my computer to Suspend to Disk at 1% battery life, and I've told kpowersave to do so. But it keeps shutting down instead. What's up with that?

There is a risk for conflict between powernowd and kpowersave.
However I think there is a very limited risk in uninstalling something and then reinstalling
So I think you can uninstall powersave and reinstall in case it doesn't work out This leaves you with the option to test powernowd
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
