try on your machine

The command "sudo tlp bat" is used to execute a utility called "tlp" with the "bat" option as a superuser (administrator) in a Linux environment.

"Tlp" stands for "TLP - Power Management for Linux" and is a tool that helps optimize and manage power consumption settings on laptops and other portable devices running Linux operating systems.

The "bat" option in this command is used to specifically configure and apply power-saving settings when the device is running on battery power. Running this command as a superuser allows the user to make system-wide changes to power management settings for better energy efficiency and battery life.
