I’m using openSUSE 12.1 64 bit with Kernel version 3.1.10 on a HP Envy 14 Beats Edition, with Radeon HD6630 and Intel HD 3000 graphics. OpenSUSE is doing quite well but i’ve got a problem with overheating and battery management. The battery on a power-saver mode lasts only for 2:30 h , on Windows it’s more than 4 hours. I found couple of tips on a website :
This guy was able to improve his performance and work for 4 hours. He claims that, battery life improves after disabling ATI adapter which is working even on power-saver mode with intel card.He’s using a command :
echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch
Unfortunately vgaswitcheroo is not coming with this system/kernel versions. Do you have any ideas how to install it , or disable ati adapter in the other way ?
Thanks in advance !
