Power saving


Where do I look for power saving controll (Suse 8.0)?
How is this implemented? In the kernal or in the device drivers?

Power Saving is done by the kernel, look for APM and ACPI.
XFree86 can take care of controlling power to your display device.
To make this work you need to add:
Option "DPMS"
in Section "Monitor" of your /etc/X11/XF86Config (or XF86Config-4) file.
In KDE you can select "Enable Display Energy Saving" under Power Control / Energy.
