The power management options are quite cluttered around the wiki. This page should give an overview of the possible options where one can change power management settings. Descriptions for laptop-mode-tools is currently missing and there doesn't exist a wiki page for laptop-mode-tools yet. Also there is no description on how to use the laptop-mode-tools as I don't know how to use them. The precedence of the power setting options should be clarified. --[[User:BertiBoeller|BertiBoeller]] ([[User talk:BertiBoeller|talk]]) 01:24, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
: Thanks. The wiki indeed need a general Power Management page. However, application specific info should be moved to their page. e.g. Systemd related info should belong to [[Systemd]]. This page can be serve as index page of power management with links to other existing wiki page. -- [[User:Fengchao|Fengchao]] ([[User talk:Fengchao|talk]]) 03:05, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
::Yes, having a general introduction to power management in Arch with links to all our articles would be really helpful, however I too recommend to move application-specific information to the proper pages. Please also link this article from others, and remember that we already have [[General Recommendations#Power management]] and [[Laptop#Power Management]] that may now overlap this article: duplication of information should always be avoided.
::As fixed by Fengchao in the article, we do have a [[Laptop Mode Tools]] article and also other pages related to power management, e.g. [[Acpid]] which is not even mentioned here. Please search the wiki more thoroughly.

:: Is it possible to rename the page? Perhaps a better name would be "Power Management (Overview)" to make the intention clear that this page should serve as a starting point for everyone interested in Archlinux power management. I had and have troubles finding out where to enable the power management options, especially as some options set in one place can be overruled by a setting in another place. My intention with this article was also to show the order in which the options are called. For example I was using the Kernel command line parameter for the audio powersave but the setting always overruled somwhere until I found out that it was pm-utils in combination with upower which overruled my setting.
:: Is it also possible to add an keyword to this page so that it shows up when someone searches for example for ''powersave''? --[[User:BertiBoeller|BertiBoeller]] ([[User talk:BertiBoeller|talk]]) 10:26, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
::: You can create a page [[powersave]] and redirect to this page. See [[Help:Editing#Redirects]].
::: I do not think a rename is necessary. There are many overview pages in Arch Wiki without a overview in their name. Feel free to clean up and restructure this page to make it a really good overview.
