Well until yesterday I didn't know that Fedora didn't install /
configure any of these packages. I've installed tlp and powertop, I
didn't know powertop did anything other than monitor. I'll see what
powertop --auto-tune does. I don't even know if the tlp package has
enabled anything either. I wonder if having tlp installed and running
powertop --auto-tune will conflict / fight each other...

Time to try stuff out.
