Big battery power consumption

Bought new battery and the power management is still horrible.
20W consumption as you see in a picture, the 12:40 point was when I took out the AC and started using the battery.
I am using tlp and slimbookbatt

No one can help you if you don’t provide any information of your system. :wink:


Sorry, I fixed it.

Your graphic card setting looks odd as you are still using nouveau driver for your Nvidia card. As you have both, Intel and Nvidia card you should look for hybrid drivers, e.g. as described here:


I had optimus before and used the intel one for saving battery consumption, and now I removed it for check if nouveau saves battery better for me.
