Instructions

How to install laptop-mode-tools on Debian:

  1. Make sure you have a kernel that supports laptop mode. Any version starting from 2.6.6 should do, or any version that includes the file /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode.
  2. Either install the package laptop-mode-tools with apt-get/aptitude/your favourite apt frontend. If you want the cutting edge version, download the package from this page (laptop-mode-tools_x.y-z_all.deb, where x.y-z is the package version number), become root, and install it:
su
(type your root password)
dpkg -i laptop-mode-tools_x.y-z_all.deb

If everything went OK, laptop mode will be activated automatically the next time you unplug your laptop from the mains (except when you have an APM laptop). You can configure laptop mode tools using the config file, which is in /etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf. You can read more about the configuration options using

man laptop-mode.conf

That's all there's to it!
