Hello Spins users,
I recently removed windows 7 and Installed Fedora SPIN.
Power consumption in F17 is considerably high (compared to windows)
Full charged battery I am getting (6 hours in windows) and (2 hours in
fedora 17 spin)
Does any one facing the same problem ??? please help me out.
It's really not spins question. Generally the open source drivers for video
cards are not able to do power management as well as the closed drivers.
You might try seeing in the catalyst or nvidia (if appropriate) gives
you better battery like. There are also some kernel settings that can
affect power consumption, but i am not real familiar with them. You also
want to be careful with some that are experimental as there is potential
do damage hardware.
