Hey, I remember (10?) years ago I saw a blog post from someone that was using a tool to gather data on which programs wake up the processor from idle states (c-states) increasing battery drain for no good reason, and using this they removed all programs that woke the processor a lot and increased battery life. I'm trying to do the same thing on my Linux laptop, but I can't find that tool nor any reference to it or the tool they used. Any ideas?
@jon_valdes Wasn't powertop was it?
@OTheB hah! Looking at the description it looks like that was exactly the program. Thanks!
@kmicu Yes, someone else told me :) It's an awesome program!
