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.


  • Phil Knirsch <> (Lead, tuned, monitoring, documentation)
  • Jiri Skala <>(BLTK packager)
  • Marcela Maslanova <> (initscript/udev service start/stop review)
  • Petr Lautrbach <> (initscript/udev service start/stop automation)
  • Jan Scotka <> (QA coverage)
  • Karel Volny <> (QA coverage)

Joining the SIG

As with most other Fedora projects and SIGs all it takes is your interest. There are enough topics to cover around Power Management, so it's unlikely we will run out of work to do. :)

How you can help

  • Meetings:We will hold weekly meetings to discuss the general topic: IRC meetings - SIGs/PowerManagement/Meetings Every Thursday at 15:00 - 16:00 UTC
  • Work Areas: We have several real technical oriented work areas, listed below. If you want to contribute to any of them feel free to check out the specific areas.
  • Testing: In order to be able to make any kind of comparison we will need reproducible testing. This includes measurements itself as well as reproducible workloads. For the later we've included BLTK in Fedora 11 already, for the former we're still investigating how to address this properly.

Work Areas


Work around kernel, hardware and driver topics are being covered in detail here: SIGs/PowerManagementKernel


Same for the underlying baisc user space topics: SIGs/PowerManagementBaseOS
