Trying to reduce our memory and battery footprint

Hey guys,

In the past cycles, we saw our memory need for an user session 
increasing quite a lot. One of the consequence is that our battery life 
on laptop diminished.
I think having a session discussing and trying to review if we can work 
on the more offending daemons, disabling some plugins and so on, can 
help to put her in a better position on that front.

As with install disk cleaning, some regular checkups like this one can 
be interesting to process regularly, we can also discuss about how to 
put some automated tests in place to ensure we tackle any regression 
then on power consumption or used RAM.
