 +  - Under 'System Administration' click on 'YaST'
 +  - Type in the administrator password to open YaST.

 +  - In the text box that is labelled 'Optional Kernel Command Line Parameter' copy and paste the following text AFTER any existing text that may be there. DON'T replace any text that is already in the text box. ''cpufreq.default_governor=performance'' 
 +  Click 'OK' 
 +  - Close YaST. 
 +  - Reboot your computer to ensure that the CPU governor is working as expected (use the RealtimeConfigQuickScan application to check).
  
-''sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/cpupower.service''
