Idle is the most important workload of a client system. Modern client platforms are heavily optimized for low power. In this talk, Alexandra will explore how the platform can support idle workloads, and how Linux supports these platform features.

Additionally, Alexandra will demonstrate a practical example on how to tune the power management features of a laptop to minimize overall power consumption while idle. She will use various tools and analysis techniques including PowerTOP & Turbostat. Upon completion of the talk, the audience should have a general understand of Linux idle power management, as well as the steps needed to properly configure an out of the box Linux distribution to take advantage of the power features available on the latest Intel platforms.
