I installed the PowerTop application in Ubuntu 11.04 and according to it, npviewer.bin is consuming more power than other processes.
What is npviewer.bin? Why does it take most of the computer's power?
sudo pkill npviewer.bin
It's part of nspluginwrapper. It's probably being used to play Flash, which can be a large power drain.
