For battery issue
You can install Slimbook Battery 3 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and above by adding the official Slimbook PPA to your list of software sources.

To add the PPA run this command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:slimbook/slimbook

Followed by this command to install the battery
optimizer applet:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install slimbookbattery

When everything has downloaded and installed you will be able to launch the app from the apps grid. Search for “Battery” and launch the tool.

Keep in mind that this app only works when it is run and an energy mode is specified. If you don’t launch the app, it can’t provide any power optimisations — so consider adding it your Startup Applications.

I hope it helps!!
