What is laptop-mode-tools?

Laptop Mode Tools is a laptop power saving package for Linux systems. It allows you to extend the battery life of your laptop, in several ways. It is the primary way to enable the Laptop Mode feature of the Linux kernel, which lets your hard drive spin down. In addition, it allows you to tweak a number of other power-related settings using a simple configuration file.

How to install laptop-mode-tools?

su
yum install http://sourceforge.net/projects/postinstaller/files/fedora/releases/19/x86_64/updates/laptop-mode-tools-1.63-7.fc19.noarch.rpm

known Issues

You do not have a single USB device that you want powered down while actively using your computer, even in power saving mode. Your wired USB mouse, you bluetooth radio that I use to connect to your car's computer, various cameras, you laptop cooler, and you various usb mass storage devices all become annoying to use when the USB power is shut off after only a few seconds. If you are not using them, you typically will unplug them from the USB port just because you cannot have everything plugged simultaneously into your laptop.

Then if you want change the usb-autosuspend options

su
sudo gedit /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/usb-autosuspend.conf

Now, set or change CONTROL_USB_AUTOSUSPEND="auto" to CONTROL_USB_AUTOSUSPEND="0" Alternatively, you can set AUTOSUSPEND_USE_WHITELIST=1 and then whitelist the usb devices that you can be autosuspended with AUTOSUSPEND_USBID_WHITELIST="" and AUTOSUSPEND_USBTYPE_WHITELIST="" in the same file as above. You can use lsusb when the device is plugged in to determine its type and/or USB ID. I consider either of these solutions preferrable to blacklisting because most USB devices are designed to be used while they are plugged in and many of them have their own power-down routines and stop drawing power when they're not being used.

This is a program without any warranty, use it at your own risk.
