DELL D620 power usage (Win 7 vs Mint 11)
,----[ Quote ]
| I recently bought a JOEL WattforbrugsmÃler.
| My laptop, a Dell D620, has both Windows and Linux (Dualboot).
| I was curious to see whether there was any difference in power consumption
| during idle, so I decided to put my new device to use!
| I removed the battery from the laptop and plugged the charger into my power
| measuring device before I made sure Windows 7 was running up-to-date drivers,
| while Linux ran the default drivers.
| I then disabled all non-default services and removed any third-party programs
| from the startup. I booted into each os, let it run for some time (to make
| sure it was indeed idle) before turning on the clock.
