A Control Panel for Lenovo Thinkpad Laptop

LaptopControlPanel is a Python module that provides a Graphical Control Panel for Lenovo Thinkpad Laptop and a console tool to monitor and manage the battery. Such functions are not provided by standard control panels like those of the KDE desktop.

The control panel features:

  • switch on/off network interfaces (wifi and bluetooth)
  • switch on/off Nvidia GPU using /proc/acpi/bbswitch
  • fan control using thinkpad-acpi module and /proc/acpi/ibm/fan
  • battery control through ACPI calls

The battery management tool permits:

  • to set the start and stop capacity threshold to charge the battery,
  • to switch on battery when AC power is plugged,
  • to setup a "peak shift" procedure.

Some usages of these functions are:

  • to switch off the Nvidia GPU to save battery
  • to speed-up the fan to cool the hard drive located under the left hand
