View Full Version : [other] Linux Power Saving on the MBA 2011 [Tips/Tricks/Tutorial]

So, although I use Arch, I figured I'd swing by and share this here.

I keep a blog, and I've been making some tweaks to my MacBook Air 2011 (4,1) in order to try and use as little battery as possible, so my past two posts have detailed these changes.

Although these tweaks were applied to a MBA, many of them can be applied to most other systems, especially those that are using the Intel chipset.

So, here's the second post (http://calummacrae.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/being-green-with-penguins-apples-part.html) that details the script and and modifications I use.

I would really appreciate some feedback, especially if you guys can suggest any more changes that would even further improve battery life!

I hope this helps any people who are looking for some extra juice :)
