I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 x64 and trying to choose power management software. Laptop-mode-tools have a lot of features, but the only reason why I'm worry about is that it's manual and config files are written like for Linux 2.6 kernel. But Ubuntu currently has 3.2 kernel version, and, as I know, it has a lot of powersaving improvements. That's why:
- laptop-mode-tools may be obsolete;
- laptop-mode-tools may conflict with new kernel features and destabilize the system.
So, the question is – are laptop-mode-tools still relevant for Ubuntu 12.04 or Ubuntu handles this stuff good by itself?
