Fedora PowerManagement SIG


The PowerManagement SIG (Special Interest Group) is a group of Fedora contributors that wants to improve the current state of power management and savings across the whole Fedora distribution. This starts at kernel components, goes over userland improvements up to usability and user experience on the Desktop.
