Install tlp and powertop using this command sudo apt install tlp powertop.

To enable tlp to manage your laptop battery, run this command in terminal sudo systemctl enable tlp.

To see the power consumption of each service, just use this command sudo powertop. Then disable the services you don’t need to reduce battery consumption.
