I'm not a Linux savvy but why do you guys talk about compiling kernel etc. when the debs are available? See here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/PowerManagement With this it requires user to issue literally two terminal commands to get his new kernel ready. I got
~$ uname -a
... 3.0.0-13-generic #22+mjgaspmfix ...
so I think I've succeeded.

That it didn't give me any improvements regarding power issues is a whole another story http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...9#post11460009

I'd appreciate if anyone could comment on that last bit.
