NAME

       powertweakd - Powertweak daemon

SYNOPSIS

       powertweakd  [--config-file file] [--no-daemon] [--no-info] [--profile-
       dir dir]

DESCRIPTION

       The powertweakd daemon applies configuration tweaks to the system.   It
       is  primarily  intended  to  be  controlled  using  the  powertweak  or
       gpowertweak programs.

OPTIONS

       -c, --config-file
              Specify the file to read settings from.

       --no-daemon
              Run in the foreground rather than as a daemon.

       --no-info
              Do not use information-only tweaks.

       -p, --profile-dir
              Specify the directory in which profile information can be found

       --version
              Show the version of program then exit.

FILES

       /etc/powertweak/tweaks
              Default configuration file.  When the set  of  currently  active
              tweaks  is  saved  they will be stored in this file.  On startup
              powertweakd will parse this file (unless  another  is  specified
              with  the  -c  or  --config-file  options)  and apply the tweaks
              defined to the system.

SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS

       powertweakd can be used to make hardware and kernel  level  changes  to
       your  system  configuration.  These changes may adversely affect system
       performance and may lead to system crashes  or  data  corruption.   Due
       caution should therefore be exercised when using this program.
