Clear Linux and PowerTop


I use linux as a daily driver. An important aspect to me is battery life for my laptop. I’ve used intel PowerTop to optimize battery usage. As Clear is being developed by Intel and optimized for x86 whats the current relationship with PowerTop.

Is PowerTop integrated or are the optimizations it uses already in Clear Linux and not necessary?

Are there optimizations in Clear linux surrounding battery life? Thanks

In general we try to do what powertop would as a distro default. @ahkok is working on a more flexible system for user customization but if you see settings that you think should be tweaked by default for specific hardware we would welcome change requests.
