Macbook air - battery draining fast + overheating

On mac OSX my battery life lasted 7 hours on Parrot OS is 3 hours. Macbook air also gets hot very easily on Parrot. While on OSX barely did.

– Parrot Home MATE 4.8 | x86-64

– Debian Standard

– Single boot parrot OS

//Computer specs

  • Apple 13" MacBook Air 2017
  • 1.8GHz Intel Core i5 Dual Core Processor
  • 8GB 1600MHz LPDDR3 memory
  • 28GB SSD storage
  • Intel HD Graphics 6000

Update: To reduce the issue. Switch off your DIS (discrete) GPU and Use TLP and ThermalD(read here for more) Had more battery power and less heating from mac.

Its better overall not to install Linux on mac models 2015 and later. No battery & heating issue on my 2011 mac book pro. But not so well on my mac book air 2017.
