Does your favorite distribution install TLP by default? Is the installer aware of the computer chassis type to know whether or not to install it? I have been enjoying the benefits of TLP on openSUSE for at least the last 3 years (since I first looked for it). I haven’t tweaked it but I am starting to wonder if maybe I could squeeze a bit more out of my machine.
My experience on openSUSE has been that TLP is automatically installed on all my laptops and not on my desktop which seems to make sense. Is there benefit in TLP on a desktop? Have you used TLP on a desktop in conjunction with some kind of UPS? Just something I have been noodling around.
