What is the purpose of this article?

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 2019-06-01.

Is it a guide especially for laptops as stated in Power_management/Guide#About_this_document...?
Or is it for managing power-hungry resources as given in the article's description?
I would like to suggest that either this article be renamed something reflecting the laptop matter or the sections regarding laptop-mode-tools be moved to its own article.
What do you think?

Shrugs, I use power saving on my main server/computer as well when I can. (eg. No need to have the house PC on if I'm not at home. Or I use to save electricity all the time.) On the flip, CPU and display power saving is already a huge given with Linux kernel and Xorg non-trivial power saving features alone, along with manufacturer hard drive time-outs. Other than this, I have no preference besides just to say hey, sometimes people use power saving extremes on home computer systems. --Roger (talk) 20:03, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
