# Revision history [back]

Hi Sailors,

I used cpufrequtils from NielDK to set the governor to powersave. This was the only way I found to get a significant impovement on battery time.

I first tried to set another governor with mcetools, but seems not to work. No error message, but also no measurable change and powersave governor not allowed as option.

as root: cpufreq-set -g powersave

Addition: the setting does not survive a reboot.

Hi Sailors,

I first tried to set another governor with mcetools, but this doesn't seem to work. No error message, but also no measurable change. Plus powersave governor was not allowed as an option.

To use this, use the following command in the terminal as root: cpufreq-set -g powersave
