I am experiencing problems with USB mouse suspend and then I uninstalled Laptop mode tools and my problem got solved.

But the discharge rate of laptop is 16 watts and battery is draining faster. I also use cooling pad attached to usb.

What are the services I need to disable/mask? I don't use blue tooth. I do use wifi.

Please help.

I'm not sure if this is the right topic in applications section.

QuoteUninstall the annoying Laptop-mode-tools and install the good TLP in your laptop.

QuoteDebian 6.0 and higher
as well as Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE)

QuoteExecute the following steps in a root shell.

Add a line for the package repository TLP-PPA to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb lucid main

Add the public key for the PPA:
Quoteapt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 02D65EFF

If the above command fails, try with a different keyserver:
Quoteapt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 02D65EFF

Update package data:
Quoteapt-get update

Install the following packages:

    tlp (PPA) – Power saving
    tlp-rdw (PPA) – optional, Radio Device Wizard
    tp-smapi-dkms (main) – optional ThinkPad only, tp-smapi is needed for battery charge thresholds and ThinkPad specific status output of tlp-stat
    acpi-call-tools (PPA) – optional ThinkPad only, acpi-call is needed for battery charge thresholds on Sandy Bridge and newer models (X220/T420, X230/T430 et al.)

The above packages may be installed via package management tools or terminal command:
Quotesudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw

ThinkPads require an additional:
Quotesudo apt-get install tp-smapi-dkms acpi-call-tools
