Linux Power Consumption Tuning

The two tools I use for tuning the power consumption of Linux are PowerTop and TLP.

Linux Power Consumption Tuning

The two tools I use for tuning the power consumption of Linux are PowerTop and TLP. Under Fedora the following commands can be used to activate the corresponding power saving services at boot time:

Enable and Disable TLP Service

[root@linux etc]# sudo systemctl disable tlp
[root@linux etc]# sudo systemctl enable tlp

Enable and Disable PowerTop Service

[root@linux etc]# sudo systemctl disable powertop.service
[root@linux etc]# sudo systemctl enable powertop.service
