Hi, I have exatly the same laptop as you and I am trying to decently run some linux distribution from months.
Currently I am running arch linux with gnome shell, and I am not as expert as you guys so could you just tell me what do you mean by deeper PC states?
I use bumblebee, with the official Nvidia drivers and the the discrete card always off (with bbswitch) laptop-mode-tools, the thermald deamon, and powertop for diagnosis, but even if I really improved my linux experience during the months, I am pretty far to obtain an experiece comparable with windows 10 where the laptop temperatures are always under 39 degrees and the battery lasts as you mentioned 40% more.
Can you just tell me those important things you found out with your experiece? Why you say that you need to use the nouveau and not the Nvidia officials? can you explain me better how to activate the sleep 1 option? what about the r8168?
Thank you in advance.
