So after playing around with masking power-profiles-daemon and trying TLP + auto-cpufreq I’ve determined that going the “old fashioned” route is just not cutting it on my machine.
I’ve uninstalled TLP and auto-cpufreq and re-enabled power-profiles-daemon and for the time being I am happy staying with this ‘default’ option (should have all along).
However, the ability to change power profiles from the quick settings is completely gone for me and I do not know how to bring it back. Any help would be appreciated.
I’m a bit frustrated with my battery life on EndeavourOS Gnome (not Endeavours fault I imagine), as an HP machine with the ‘same’ hardware as mine with the only difference being it has a 41Wh battery and I have a 37Whr battery, claims an 11hr battery life and my brand new machine barely gets past 4 hours on battery.
