How to make powertop settings permanent?

Tue Mar 06, 2018 9:28 pm

Hi there!

To start I would like to say, that I really love using Solus! However, when using Windows I get approx 9-10 hours of battery life, which has been reduced to 4-5 hours after switching to Solus. But "powertop" has got me back on track in terms of battery life.

But it seems like I have to open powertop and set the right settings everytime i turn on my computer (which is a bit annoying).

So do any of you know how to make my current powertop settings default?

Thanks :-)
