How did you measure? - I just checked the value after 2 minutes in idle. Any better ideas? Maybe a script with min/avg/max values over a time period?

I observed the power_now "counter" provided by tp_smapi over a short period of time (30 seconds, maybe?)

I do it with cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT[whatever it is]/state


It would be great to have explicit, step-by-step instructions for getting the measurements right on the page. I know I could find out how to do it, but it would save a lot of time, make it easier for me to get, and make it more likely that I'll post my results. --Whizkid 18:19, 8 February 2008 (CET)


StefanB, Could you be so kind to post the kernel config you used to achieve the results you posted? I get around 12W (2.6.24, no X, all modules unloaded, wireless killswitch, with framebuffer, encrypted root, ..) ): tia Ra 18:53, 26 March 2008 (CET) PS: It would be nice if everone posted the kernel configs used anyway..
