How to install TLP 1.2 Battery Optimizer on Ubuntu 18.04

Today we are looking at how to install TLP 1.2 on Ubuntu 18.04.  TLP is an app that a person installs and just forgets about it and it will optimize your battery usage so that your battery will last longer, which is great.  

It works great well out of the box, I run it on my system.  A person just installs it as seen on the video and then just forget about it and you should see your system last longer on its battery.  You can configure the config file, you can read about it on the official site, but I run it just as it is and it's perfect for me.  Enjoy!

Commands Used:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install tlp
