I have installed powertop to save me some battery time.
I have followed this arch how to “powertop arch”.
I have initiated a calibration # powertop --calibrate to create an auto tune base for the systemd service.
I have started and enabled the systemd service. Then rebooted. I am finding that the service won’t start.
Strangely enough I have
Active: inactive (dead) since Tue 2020-12-08 12:37:17 CET; 1min 3s ago
saturne systemd: powertop.service: Succeeded.
Is it dead or is it alive and running as one would expect ?
It is possible to post the terminal output as text. Just copy, paste, higlight and use </> button to format. This will make them easier to read, to copy and their contents will be searchable by engines.
Out of the box, powertop showed all of default EndeavourOS settings to be “good” except for one, VM writeback timeout:
>> Bad VM writeback timeout
Good Wireless Power Saving for interface wlan0
Good NMI watchdog should be turned off
Good Enable Audio codec power management
Good Bluetooth device interface status
Good Runtime PM for I2C Adapter i2c-5 (AMDGPU DM i2c hw bus 2)
Good Runtime PM for I2C Adapter i2c-6 (AMDGPU DM i2c hw bus 3)
When I check
It shows 6000… 60 seconds correct? I think powertop suggests 1500, 15 seconds?
