8.3 Saving Power by Using Schemes

Power management schemes let you adjust various power management parameters to the requirements of certain typical situations you are facing when using your machine. KPowersave ships with a set of four preconfigured schemes which you can adjust to your needs. To switch schemes with KPowersave just right-click the panel icon and select Set Active Scheme. The following schemes are available:


Keep your machine running with full power and full speed to achieve maximum performance.


Apply any measure that makes sure your machine runs as quietly as possible.


Disable any display power management and screen savers to make sure that your presentation is not interrupted by a blanked display or such like.


Apply aggressive power management methods to make sure that your machine runs as long as possible when put on battery power instead of AC power.
