Singificantly worse battery life with nvidia drivers installed

Hi. I have a ryzen 5500u and nvidia 1650 laptop. I have microos aeon installed on it. If i go to the snapshot before nvidia drivers were installed i get a reading of about 4 watts at idle on powertop, but in the snapshot after nvidia install i idle at around 12 watts. In ubuntu with drivers installed i used to get around 4 watts idle as well. cat /sys/class/drm/card*/device/power_state reads d0 with drivers installed, d3cold without them. What can be done? Thanks.
