Comment 1 Jaroslav Škarvada 2011-12-06 12:12:38 EST
AFAIK you need to run it for a while (approx. one hour) to collect enough data. Regarding the error message there was bug 698020.
Comment 2 Onuralp SEZER 2011-12-06 12:35:30 EST
Thank you , According to you first I will update to powertop from testing repo and calibrate again.
Comment 3 Jaroslav Škarvada 2011-12-07 05:09:53 EST
After calibration let it run for a while on battery (according to my tests approx. one hour) and it will show wattage estimation for each process / device. Then, if you exit, the estimation engine will save its state.

I think this together with the above mentioned update should resolve your problem. If the problem persists, please let me know.
