Requested by: Frank Seidel (fseidel)

Description:
Some kind of "power meter" would be good to have. It could be
integrated into the system monitor applet or in kpowersave/gnome-power-
manager (to be discussed).
Its intent is to make the user aware when the system starts to hog
power (e.g. after starting some bad behaving application that polls
"expensive" hardware all the time). Some kind of "power meter" would be
good to have. It could be integrated into the system monitor applet or
in kpowersave/gnome-power-manager (to be discussed).

Relations:
- provide common source for a overall battery time information
(feature/id: 303749)

Documentation Impact:
Needs to be documented

In regards of Green IT theme for SLE 11 this sounds like useful thing.

#2: Stefan Behlert (sbehlert) (2008-05-29 23:23:48) (reply to #1)
Right..

#4: JP Rosevear (jproseve) (2008-06-02 13:52:01)
Christian, can we actually aggregate power consumption information from
somewhere? If so, getting a gui on top of it should be straight
forward.

#5: Christian Zoz (zoz) (2008-06-19 15:03:57)
Power consumption information is only available when the system runs on
battery. But i guess on ac-power this info is less interesting anyway.
We can get this information via ACPI. Not really power consumption, but
power drain of each battery. I suggest that hal can provide individual
drain and aggregate overall power consumption. For that have a look at
feature:
#303749: provide common source for a overall battery time information

For gnome-power-manager, we already have something like this (right-
click -> power history), it shows lots of information about powe
consumption. Isn't this enough?

#7: JP Rosevear (jproseve) (2008-09-10 16:49:55)
Fate 303749 is not complete, so I think I have to reject this.
