New Laptop. Decided to try KDE/Plasma 5 on it.
Battery fully charged.
Copied my data.
Shut the laptop down to go to an event where I need about 4h of battery life, but as the laptop lasts about 12h (verified this during install) I don't expect any problems.
Started the laptop on battery.
Some search program starts Indexing all files and literally sucks the battery dry to ~60% within just a couple of minutes before I notice and are able to kill the process.
Process starts again immediately and continues sucking my battery down to ~35% before I manage to find that stupid switch to really disable it.
Why can't these tools check if they're on battery before they launch these damn index processes?
Besides that I was never asked if I really want to index all my files (the answer would have been a big NO) and there was absolutely no indicator that such a process was running in the background.
