Power management

Power profiles and CPU frequency scaling works fine with powersave I have decided to install latest versions of powersaved and kpowersave (the arch version is outdated):

  1. Download both packages from powersave.sf.net
  2. Install hal hdparm acpid cpufrequtils vbetool
  3. Install both packages
    1. powersaved: ./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install
    2. kpowersave: ./configure --prefix=/opt/kde && make && make install
  4. run 'groupadd power' and add your normal user to that group
  5. Copy necessary files
    1. Download them from http://cvs.archlinux.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/daemons/powersave/?cvsroot=Unstable&only_with_tag=CURRENT
    2. copy powersave.conf to /etc/dbus-1/system.d/
    3. copy powersaved to /etc/rc.d
  6. Add the following modules to rc.conf: speedstep-centrino cpufreq_conservative cpufreq_stats cpufreq_powersave cpufreq_userspace cpufreq_ondemand
  7. Add the following service to rc.conf (at least after hal and debus): powersaved
