F25 + Macbook Air => fail => battery life

While core team has done a great job with efi boot and macbook is simple to install Fedora - the battery life on our 13" Macbook Airs is terrible - about 2 hrs. Have tried powertop and tlp but does not help. Powertop shows most of draw with network manager! (if correct). Read somewhere that there are way too many "ticks" going on.

We have already been switching to Toshiba 13 Chromebook 2 rooted for Linux - they work great with about 8 hr of battery life. But would like to get some use of our Macbook Airs

Anyone having more success ?
