I think the most important ones are:

  • SATA_LINKPWR_ON_BAT (this had an issue where it corrupted data, but that was a few years ago so it should be fine)

(I haven't used these myself because I don't have a radeon card, but it should improve battery life for you):


I had to set USB_AUTOSUSPEND=0 because otherwise my usb devices kept turning off, but you might not need this.

have you done the TLP stuff?

first make sure you don't have power profiles daemon because this conflicts with tlp

you can turn it off with

sudo systemctl stop power-profiles-daemon.service
sudo systemctl mask power-profiles-daemon.service

install tlp with

sudo apt install tlp
sudo systemctl enable tlp

and edit the config at /etc/tlp.conf to optimise your battery

the instructions are in the file iirc

basically set your CPU settings (I use powersave on my intel non-framework), and maybe have a look at the radeon graphics things (I don't have an amd system so I can't say much about this)

and refresh your config with

sudo tlp start

if you also get powertop (sudo apt install powertop) you can monitor your power consumption in that. (sudo powertop)

If you can't be bothered with this, I think you can also just install power profiles daemon but I like tlp better because it gives you much finer control over your system

Made some replacement parts for the T430 because I had a broken T430 that was missing these. None of them require screws so they should be ideal if you find a broken T430 on the side of the road or something.

I just bought a used "faulty" T430.

It doesn't turn on at all (no lights, no sounds, no fan spin) and when I tried to turn it on with only the critical components (motherboard, power adapter and speakers), I got the same result.

I've also examined the power area on the motherboard, and it seems like 20V is getting delivered to the motherboard just fine.

But I've looked at the motherboard thoroughly, and I couldn't find a single part of it that looked bad.

Is this definitely caused by the motherboard, or could it be an issue with another component like the CPU?

Because of the time it takes for mods to moderate content on Lemmy, the"new" sort's been prone to abuse.

Could a "delayed new" sort, where the newest content x hours ago is shown be introduced to help suppress this problem?

Coming from Windows 10 (I switched 6 months ago), I find the task switcher animation in KDE extremely obnoxious, as I expect it to pop up instantly.

Still, I enjoy the other animations in KDE, so I don't want to turn off all the animations in the global settings.

I searched for a solution but all the relevant posts were on the now defunct KDE subreddit which I cannot view.

Is there any way to turn off just the fade in/fade out animation?

I made a theme for Lemmy that can be applied using the https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/styl-us/ extension for FireFox!
