When I put the screen of my desktop PC to sleep, I usually just use:
$ xset dpms force off
However, I’ve noticed through the fan graphing tool that the fans of my Nvidia 1070 still spin at full speed which means it’s also consuming lots of power. Is there a reduced power mode? Is there a way to reduce the fan speed when the display is not in use? Is there a better command to use when I want to put my sleep to sleep?
I’m using the 396.24 driver.
