0.7W would be lovely. I have used your EFI indeed and also have tried darkvoid but I don't go lower than that. I have a FHD screen without touch and SD card reader has been disabled.pkg at 0.7W. You need to use the USB-C fix from the dark void repo on GitHub. This is also in my EFI, so if you used my whole EFI without updating anything, you should have the same draw. Btw turn off your touchscreen and the sd card reader in BIOS, it saves you a little bit and it may be the culprit.
Do I need to copy the CPUFriend kexts in SLE as well ? I read it this somewhere but I guess all should be in the EFI folder...0.7W would be lovely. I have used your EFI indeed and also have tried darkvoid but I don't go lower than that. I have a FHD screen without touch and SD card reader has been disabled.
Could it be my NVME(Hynix) Also I still have the killer wifi installed.
ah that’s not the right one, its for an i7. Here you go, its my current one.
thanks!! I'll try tomorrow. to be honest with different settings and other CLOVER packages I found for 9360 I get similar results. I suspect it's the NVME not being power managed. Can I ask what NVME do you have or if you have swapped it for a M2 SSD instead ?
Did you format your NVME right? Did you enable TRIM and SSD power management?So basically I've tried different packages and EFI folders from different people on GitHub, I now have stuck with yours.. Power is always hovering around the 1.8-2W mark regardless of the settings. I have lost patience and pulled the NVME out, booted from an external USB drive and power is at around 0.6W....so it must be the NVME not being power managed as other have reported.... but two questions:
- What NVME do you have @Richylitschy ? I have the PC300 NVMe SK hynix 256GB
- On my ex XPS 9343 with a Samsung PM851 I didn't have the issue.... I guess it was an SSD and not an NVME ? I was all the time at around 0.7W when idle.
