Hello everyone this is my first post so please bear with me. But I changed from Windows mid 2023 and have not looked back. It’s been great and I have learned so much, having fun all the while.
but since the last update sometime last week. I have noticed if I am watching YouTube or playing any video game. very 10-20 seconds my FPS drops below Vsync. With my partner’s help we looked through the active processes in the system monitor while a game was running and spotted org_kde_powerdevil would jump to the top of the CPU usage list just before the fps would drop.
googling around I found the below form thread with someone having the same issue. I noticed a killall command in the replays and gave it a shot. It works! until I restart the system it stays at Vsync.
not sure if it’s worth pointing out but when I open the power saving setting page in system settings. it says "Power management configuration module could not be loaded” Is this connected to my issue?
