In this line:

To complete TLP's install, you must enable the systemd services tlp.service and tlp-sleep.service. You should also disable the systemd service systemd-rfkill.service to avoid conflicts and assure proper operation of TLP's radio device switching options.

systemd-rfkill.service is static, it should probably be changed from "disable" to "mask"

The "Btrfs corruption" issue appears to have be a device/kernel-specific quirk. Anecdotally, I've been running tlp & Btrfs with aggressive link power management for ~6 months without issue (kernel v4.10 & v4.11). The parent issue Btrfs and TLP mentions a specific combination (ThinkPad X240 and kernel 3.18.6). Likely the issue was resolved in new kernel versions. Tlvince (talk) 11:34, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Would you mind letting upstream know of this and maybe start a discussion there. You might get more attention to the topic and hear different opinions. I will gladly remove the warning from the wiki as soon as there is some sort of general consensus. -- Edh (talk) 12:28, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
After running btrfs on several devices without issues, enabling sata-minpower in TLP lead to a broken btrfs on a Thinkpad X140e --Bjo (talk) 20:59, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
Since kernel 4.15 this issue is supposed to be resolved by introducing med_power_with_dipm setting. More info on this can be found at Phoronix and in the upstream discussion on this issue. —This unsigned comment is by Iffer (talk) 13:24, 16 March 2018‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

CPU scaling on i7-5600U (ThinkPad T450s)

Intel i7-5600U has a Processor Base Frequency of 2.60GHz and a Max Turbo Frequency of 3.20GHz.

By default, TLP sets the max frequency to 3.20GHz.

With intel_pstate disabled, TLP will set the max frequency to 2.60GHz.

I'm not sure how it is best, I just thought of mentioning this here, perhaps it's worth adding this on the TLP wiki page.
