My problem is I'm running Ubu 11.10 on dual boot and I noticed that the battery consumption is quite heavy when using Ubuntu. I noticed the fan is more active compared to using Windows7, but that's probably because the hardware settings is configured for it and doesn't support Linux.
So I searched for solutions and found Jupiter app. It's suppose to allow me to configure hardware settings so I can optimize my power usage, right?
I followed the instructions from the webupd8, and believed I've installed it properly as it appears in the startup applications.
However, I don't see the lightning bolt icon on my systray nor do I know how to open it/use it.
Did I installed it right or am I missing something here?
Please help, thanks!
(ps: I'm using Alienware m11x r3;i7 8gb - if thats relevant)
