CPU Frequency Scaling in Arch Linux
Thanks for your response. I do understand that part. However, my question is whether it is possible that the settings for CPU Frequency Scaling in Arch Linux, in my installation are somehow arbitrarily going to performance mode even in everyday tasks? I have adjusted the settings using the command line to reflect Powersave, On Demand and conservative. It does not seem to make much difference. It does sit on 800 MHZ at first but then seems to easily reach 2200 MHZ even in everyday tasks, unlike my Ubuntu and Suse installations which do not fluctuate from the base frequency of 800 MHZ during everyday tasks.
Thanks again for any suggestion that you may offer.
