Optimize laptop battery life
  13 reviews

TLP is a feature-rich command-line utility, saving laptop battery power without the need to delve deeper into technical details.

TLP’s default settings are already optimized for battery life and implement Powertop’s recommendations out of the box. Moreover TLP is highly customizable to fulfil specific user requirements.

Settings are organized into two profiles, allowing to adjust between savings and performance independently for battery (BAT) and AC operation. In addition TLP can enable or disable Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi and WWAN radio devices on boot.

For ThinkPads and selected other laptops it provides a unified way to configure charge thresholds and recalibrate the battery.

It used to be excellent, but with recent kernels above 5.4 it messes up sleep and suspend functionality. System freezes after waking up from sleep, and removing tlp solves everything.

I did not notice a really difference in my laptop temperature. I recommend using a tool called auto-cpufreq which works better, or editing manually the system cpu configuration files for reducing the minimum CPU frequence, disabling turbo and change the CPU scalling governor.
