TLPUI is a graphical user interface for TLP power management tools (Ubuntu installation instructions)

TLP It is an advanced power management tool for optimizing battery life on laptops running Linux. Its default configuration is usually sufficient to improve battery life, however, TLP provides a wide range of configuration options that can be changed by editing its configuration file.

TLP is a command-line tool that does not have a graphical user interface, but TLP has a third-party GTK GUI (written in Python) interface called Tebao . TLPUI is considered beta software.

TLPUI shows that an option has been changed (and needs to be saved to apply) and its default value
