EDIT/UPDATE: Here is a screenshot of powertop tuning report: Link
I'm very new to Ubuntu. Sorry if there are a lot of similar question to this but the answers I found from others differ from one another. Anyway, I'm running a dual boot of Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.10.
My problem is whenever I boot to Ubuntu, my laptop's battery gets drained rather quickly compared to when I boot Windows. I also noticed excessive air blowing from the side vents of my laptop whenever I'm on Ubuntu. Also, if it's worth mentioning, my laptop is a Lenovo G505s.
After doing research, I found out about these:
Laptop mode - I read that it is not needed in 13.10 but I also read from other guides that I need to install it?
TLP - Must not be installed with Laptop mode. Is this a good power management tool?
Jupiter - Do I need this as well?
I installed powertop but I don't know how to use it. Please help with this. Here's the report (I think this is the relevant one): Link
I also did the necessary tidbits like lowering brightness, only using WiFi when I need it, etc.
Any other suggestions would be extremely helpful. Thank you in advance.
