Subject description: to minimise a computer's electrical power consumption & system-tuning daemon
 

Powertop
PowerTOP is a software utility designed to measure, explain and minimise a computer's electrical power consumption. It was released by Intel in 2007 under the GPLv2 license. It works for Intel, AMD, ARM and UltraSPARC processors.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Powertop

To configure PowerTOP on your system, simply calibrate it, enable it, and start it:

powertop --calibrate: This will take a while and do things such as change the brightness of your screen.
systemctl enable powertop: This will enable PowerTOP the next time you reboot.
systemctl start powertop: This will start PowerTOP in auto-tune mode.

Tuned
Tuned is a dynamic adaptive system-tuning daemon that tunes system settings dynamically depending on usage (also from the man pages). To configure tuned on your system, simply enable it, start it, and pick a performance profile:

systemctl enable tuned
systemctl start tuned
tuned-admin list (shows all the available profiles)
man tuned-profiles (if you want to learn more about each profile)
tuned-admin profile desktop (changes your system’s tuning profile to desktop)

Umm. Should this be posted in the requests section or something?
Are there even puppies that use systemd?
