1. Is there a forum for voltageshift? I seens to not work for me the commands go through but nothing is happening (followed and did voltageshift pre-requisites).
2. that did you do with the plist file and how did it help you?
For voltageshift, the instructions on the github page were pretty complete. Biggest item to keep in mind is you need to `sudo chown -R root:wheel VoltageShift.kext/` prior to running the actual `./voltageshift` commands.
For the plist file, after some more extensive testing, I did find (as others have suggested) that the actual wattages used were not improved, and were in some cases actually made worse. I've stopped using the plist file, but am still using the undervolt along with the sata SSD for an idle wattage as low as 7.2W with minimal software installed. With a more standard install set (VPN, browsers running, text editors, slack, etc) I am seeing an idle of ~9w which is definitely acceptable for the amount of travel I do.
