    Let's stick to manual undervolting and we don't want Linux users to be greeted with black screen since we can't back to AC/Battery profile on TS. With Linux you can undervolt really high unlike Windows. Your C0% usage shows Linux is very optimised.
    You hacked my PC!! Just kidding I've same 6700HQ CPU as well.
    Tried it on Ivybridge CPU and c0% usage is amazing even with 19 tabs in firefox and thunderbird running in background.

    Yep they are. I have saved package list used by LTSC and I felt Standard cheaper W10 was better than LTSC.
    If some users undervolt too high say -200mV or more just because Linux is lighter than Windows and render the PC in non-bootable state. Even AC/Battery profile based switching rarely works. I use Xubuntu since Ubuntu is somewhat bloated too me.

    Nice app. I will try it on my laptop with a Haswell blast furnace 4800MQ CPU.

    If and when you have time, please make it also support overvolting.

    You can however use undervolt cmd line version with overvolting... I haven't tested it because I only have locked and crippled BGAs.
