tp-smapi-dkms (universe) – optional ThinkPad only, tp-smapi is needed for battery charge thresholds and ThinkPad specific status output of tlp-stat acpi-call-dkms (PPA or universe) – optional ThinkPad only, acpi-call is needed for battery charge thresholds on Sandy Bridge and newer models (X220/T420, X230/T430 et al.)
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)
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.
