Let me know how you make out with your laptop?
your welcome.

unfortunately my laptop has been delayed . The joys of ordering and not buying instore.

device.hints is a file under the /boot directory. edit this file and add the line I mentioned above.

As for power mgmt, this issue doesnt bother me (personally) whether it works or not.

The ability to save sessions and restore when you turn back on make this pointless really, IMO.

maybe another forum member can shed some light on that matter.
