    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Personalized power profile


Mar 1, 2020
Hi all,
I don't know how the power profile actually work right now but I think that a possibility to personalize them a bit would be very useful. I don't intend that should be possible to create new one other than the three already present but to have some of the property that they change personalizable. An example, right now if I switch to battery saving the screen brightness will be (obviously) dropped to the minimum but if a change back to balance it stays there, to the minimum. Generally I don't want that because I always work in a well lit environment and so having a very low brightness is just stressing for the eyes so with personalized profile we can for example choose to never change the brightness, with more battery consumption even in battery save mode but willingly. This is just an example, the first that came to my mind based on my limited experience and knowledge of how effectively the power states in Pop!_OS works but maybe someone else can find this useful too.
