Optimizing hardware and software for a given platform helps but doesn't beat upgrading to an architecture that is much more efficient. No matter what I do, there's no way no how I can make my X61, watt per watt, as energy efficient as my X220. The architecture of the X220 is much more efficient.
install tlp checking how to set battery thresholds & run powertop and look at what it suggests, if you have SDD drives only then change scheduler to NOOP, investigate putting tmp files into a RAM disk tmpfs if you have plenty of RAM, consider zwap for starters.mugenn wrote: ↑Sun May 13, 2018 2:40 pmKnowing the community behind thinkpads, I imagine some people have done some optimizations to improve them software-level. I have an x230 and I'm interested in configs to improve battery life and other aspects of it, so if you have any knowledge on them please share.
