Also see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Power...erSavingTweaks. Ubuntu did a lot of testing and added some of the "safest" settings, jupiter does a few extra things. Since I'm not a fan of the jupiter applet because there seems to be no way to turn off its over abundant notifications; On my system I just added a few extra pm utils scripts to /etc/pm/power.d (one to increase vm writeback value on battery, one to disable nmi watchdog on battery, and enabled sata alpm via "echo SATA_ALPM_ENABLE=true | sudo tee /etc/pm/config.d/sata_alpm").
