Alternative to TLP

I disabled tlp because I was having some issues.
Can you suggest any alternatives?

Its probably best to tweak TLP configs.
But laptop-mode-tools is the (arguably 'worse') alternative.
Or you can use a combination of things like powertop and cpu thresholds etc.

NOTE: powertop is a powerful tool. It IS NOT SUGGESTED that you simply run it and accept all suggestions. That would likely drastically change your computing experience.

did you ever play with the relevant tlp settings like i suggested?

TLP works fine, i had you disable it as a means to diagnose the cause of the problems you were having. its not TLP that was the problem as much as it was a setting in TLP config or lack there of a setting that was needed. in your case, blacklisting nouveau in tlp also.
but IIRC optimus-manager relies on nouveau to disable the nvidia card when you set the session to intel only. i believe there is a way to change switching modes from nouveau to bbswitch (i beleive its explained either on the optimus-manager tutorial here on the forum or the optimus-manager github)

There is also tuned used on Fedora/Red Hat systems. It has tuned-gui graphical app. You may install it from AUR (non-git version is broken don't use it).

yeah im trying out powertop deleted tlp
and using powertop with auto-tune
well dont know about other but mouse wont respond unless i click.
will see how it works out.

well i just turned off autosuspend of mouse and keyboard.

I wonder if there is any page which compares acpid, laptop mode tools, powertop and systemd power management..

That sounds like an interesting thing for you to research.
