fedora27 battery and cooling

asked 2017-12-10 04:45:08 +0000


Before I installed fedora27 and updated, my laptop was using the extra battery, but now it's using the main battery. Also, the cooler is constantly on... Something is not right. Power settings tells me that there is just over 1 hour left, and only the main battery (which has less) is being used.

Maybe you have process running that keeps your CPU busy. Run 'htop' or Gnome's System Monitor to find out more.

I just put the screen down to let it go to sleep mode for a sec, and the cooler stopped running hard, but the power problem is the same.
