Mail from Benjami reminded me something that I wanted to ask. When I want to safe battery I set up low frequency (or governor sets up).
But I noticed that there is too:
I think that I always have (even in low freq):
state count: 8
active state: T0
(If I don't change manually, echo 7 > /proc...)
Anybody could explain me why is there two systems (cpu frequency and
throttling), differences, what is best to use, etc.? At least a ubuntu was
using throttling and not cpu freq to manage the system...
Pointer to some information is valid too :-)
