Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, TLP is a popular battery tool. All that TLP does is tweak your system for better power usage / battery life. You can just install TLP and forget about it, because it does his job by itself.
The latest version available is TLP 0.5, which has been recently released. For information about the changes implemented in the latest TLP version, see the changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install TLP 0.5 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via PPA, installing TLP 0.5 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index (remove laptop-mode-tools if you have it installed) and install the tlp and tlp-rdw packages. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw
