I have configured my system to use the
powersave governor for CPU frequency, in order to increase battery life.
However, even after setting it up and verifying that it is active, my cpu frequency is usually quite high, usually 2+ GHz even though
cpupower reports the lowest supported frequency is 800MHz.
As I understand it,
powersave should be throttling the CPU to its lowest allowed frequency, but it clearly is not doing that. What can I do? Is
powersave working properly?
