-To be edited.+====== CPUPOWER Settings ====== 
 + 
 + 
 +In order to get the best performance from your processor for audio work, you need to set the CPU mode to 'performance'  
 + 
 +===== To Set Temporarily ===== 
 + 
 +To temporarily change this setting which resets upon reboot, run this command in your console: 
 + 
 +''sudo /usr/bin/cpupower frequency-set -g performance'' 
 + 
 +This will set your CPU to it's maximum rated speed. This will draw more power, and if you are using a laptop, it will drain the battery quicker.  
 + 
 + 
 +===== To Set Permanently ===== 
 + 
 +If you wish to make this change permanent, you need to create a special text file. 
 + 
 +Using your console text editor of choice create the following file (for this example, I will use nano which is pre-installed with openSUSE). 
 + 
 +''sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/cpupower.service'' 
 + 
 +Copy and paste the following text into the newly created file: 
 + 
 + 
 +---- 
 +[Unit] 
 + 
 +Description=CPU powersave 
 + 
 +[Service] 
 +Type=oneshot 
 +ExecStart=/usr/bin/cpupower frequency-set -g performance 
 + 
 +[Install] 
 + 
 +WantedBy=multi-user.target 
 + 
 +---- 
 + 
 +Then save and close the file (in nano it's **ctrl + o** then **enter** to save. To exit press **ctrl + x** 
 + 
 +Then run the following command: 
 + 
 +''sudo systemctl daemon-reload'' 
 + 
 +Followed by: 
 + 
 +''systemctl enable cpupower.service''
