PowerDevil

   1.4.2  

KDE System Tool

Score 90%
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  5196
Submitted:  Jul 12 2008
Updated:  Feb 1 2009

Description:

--- ATTENTION ---

This page will be no longer updated, just like 4.1 backports, now that 4.2 is out. PowerDevil is now in kdebase module, so from 4.2 on there is no need to download/install it as a separate application. Please use bugs.kde.org for bug reports/feature requests/whatsoever. Thanks for testing and trying PowerDevil in 4.1, we have a rock solid powermanager in 4.2 mostly thanks to you!

PowerDevil is an utility for KDE4 for Laptop Powermanagement. It consists of a Daemon (a KDED module), a KCModule to configure it, and will feature a Plasmoid soon.

With PowerDevil you can set up preferences for lid Closing, Brightness, CPU scaling, Idle time, both when connected to AC and when on Battery. It is built upon Solid, and it's very lightweight and won't overkill your system resources. If you missed KLaptop or KPowersave, this might be the tool you were looking for.

PowerDevil is part of kdebase from 4.2 on. This means it's included in kde core releases and you no longer need to compile it as an external application.

Though, I keep a branch and a tarball updated for people on KDE4.1. Enjoy it!

 Systemsettings module bug ?

 
 by tittiatcoke on: Sep 17 2008
 
Score 50%

Congratulations for a great app, but your latest 1.1 and 1.1.1 version has some strange error with regards to the Systemsettings module.

After installing your 1.1.1. version (and the 1.1 version also had the same), whenever I want to change my settings for Powerdevil, it claims that there is another copy of powerdevil is running. I rebooted a coupled of times, but it constantly is giving this error. Powerdevil itself is starting up normally and I know for sure that it is the only copy that is running.

Regards

Raymond

You are right, my mistake :) Thanks, I'll fix this in svn, and release again later in the day.

 Problem on Gentoo

 
 by mabs on: Sep 23 2008
 
Score 50%

I've tried to install powerdevil-1.2.0 under gentoo from the overlay kde-testing.

There is a big problem, the moment I login and the kde4.1 splashscreen opens my laptop suspends to ram and I can't wake it without it going back to sleep within seconds.

The only way to login is to login via console and uninstall powerdevil and then login.

My laptop is a macbook generation 1.1.

kernel is 2.6.24-tuxonice-r9-mactel (that's kernel 2.6.24 with tuxonice and mactel patched)
KDE 4.1.1 also from kde-testing overlay.

This issue is probably related to Solid. Could you please try to verify if solid powermanagement shell gives you some weird results? If you need help in finding this out, join #solid or kde-hardware-devel list, thanks

I can verify that solid-powermanagement suspend to_disk works just fine, however powerdevil does sometimes get into those cycles. I was able to break it by switching to ac_power once, however I was stuck in a loop when using 'hibernate' (to_disk).

In case I'm not making any sense, by 'loop' and 'cycle' I mean that on resume after powerdevil has suspended the laptop, it suspends again, etc, etc. I am on a Thinkpad T61 running archlinux.

Hrm, I wasn't too clear on the ac_power 'fix': it worked when powerdevil suspended to ram, but not to disk.

With 1.3, this and more issues should be fixed. Also, please use the KDE bugtracker from now on to report bugs please. Thanks everyone :)

The version of KDE you're using belongs to KDE4.2. Hence, you already have PowerDevil installed as part of KDEBase

That file should be part of KDE Cmake modules, but I'll include it in the next package.

I agree on you :) but powerdevil is not included in this gentoo overlay (kdesvn-portage, slot 4.2). So I have to compile it manually.

So when will the next release? looking forward it.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
