i agree with you in the fact that server vendors are much more willing to provide support and stick to standards and since novell/redhat are very very strong on this sector they provide much better experience but is not solely their fault cuz none of them have enough financial muscle to litigate the microsoft combo[mobo vendors/bios vendors/oems] but they do wanna attack the user market or at least bussiness pc market from a bussiness POV but is hard when every vendor is your enemy and every OEM is forced to sell microsoft license[you want them or not] so is kinda a circular problem but i guess eventually can be solved but not inmediately

Which led me to think that from a user point of view - windows power management is more "scalable" and "adjustable". On windows you can save extremely even when battery is almost over.
This situation is completely awful, and I agree with
