    Post How to reduce power consumption in Ubuntu 14.04

    For all people with power problems using Ubuntu 14.04 try downgrading your Linux kernel to Long term supported version

    either 3.10 or 3.12
    PS: it worked for me and will work for most of the people as 3.12 kernel is stable



    firstly download the 3 deb files which suit ur system architecture
    if for 32 bit =>i386
    for 64 bit =>amd64
    go for files which have generic written
    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.12.20-trusty/


    Go to the downloaded folder



    then run this



    sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.12.20* linux-image-3.12.20* .deb


    And then remove the 3.13 default kernel


    sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-3.13.0* linux-image-3.13.*
    And ur through


    If possible change the URI for Kernel updates in Software Center.

    "It worked for me" is not a sufficient recommendation as far as I am concerned. Please provide statistical evidence of a power consumption reduction.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
