PowerTOP is a Linux tool that finds the software component(s) that make
your laptop use more power than necessary while it is idle.
PowerTOP works best on a laptop computer, or at least a computer with an
Intel mobile processor (certain small non-laptop devices also contain a
mobile processor). When using PowerTOP on a laptop, do so when running
on battery.
Please note that it also runs just fine with e.g. AMD CPUs. :)
