#REDIRECT [[Power management]]
By default, audio power saving is turned off by most drivers. It can be enabled by setting the power_save parameter to a time (in seconds) to go in idle.
{{Note|Toggling the audio card's power state can cause a popping sound or noticeable latency on some broken hardware.}}
{{hc|/etc/modprobe.d/audio_power_save.conf|2=options snd_hda_intel power_save=1}}
{{hc|/etc/modprobe.d/audio_power_save.conf|2=options snd_ac97_codec power_save=1}}
==Disabling NMI watchdog==
The [[Wikipedia:Non-maskable interrupt|NMI]] watchdog is a debugging feature to catch hardware hangs and cause a kernel panic. On some systems it can generate a lot of interrupts, causing a noticeable increase in power usage.
{{hc|/etc/sysctl.d/disable_watchdog.conf|2=kernel.nmi_watchdog = 0}}
or add {{ic|nmi_watchdog}} as a [[kernel parameter]].
