TLP startup

Hallo people,

I've got some issues with my TLP on manjaro xfce: TLP only "starts" or literally "runs", when I'm on AC mode. When I boot in battery mode, the system shows me, that it runs, but the laptop is so loud [it may be the cooler of the processor] you can imagine [CPU usage about 23%]. When I plug the AC in, TLP "starts" or "is doing its job", so the laptop noise decrease and my plank shows me between 1,7 and 11% CPU usage and no noisy cooler sounds.

Do you have an idea what is my problem? Thank you


This is my system:

Have you merged the new settings from TLP 1.2.1? Check for a /etc/default/tlp.pacnew and merge it into /etc/default/tlp.

no, I didn't. I would try, but I don't know how do I merge files...

Worth reading:

I think I understand now, what pacnew etc are.
I downloaded meld to compare both files.
Meld says both files a similar. But it also says I it can't open tlp because it oder I have no authoritization (only root).
Also I did not find a butto to merge them...
Do you have another app that can merge these two files?

DIFFPROG=meld pacdiff
is the proper way, if you havent set DIFFPROG variable, or dont have or cant use vimdiff.
