    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu and the asus zenbook (UX31)

    Do you have any power saving scripts or something like that?
    If so, could you post them?

    The standby use with my UX21 is so bad, when I leave it overnight the battery is down to 60 or 70%...

    The standby power use has been utterly disgusting since BIOS 211, now we have 213, I think it's safe to assume ASUS doesn't care to fix this.

    Does anyone know of a way to solve the standby power...

    As far as I know, the touchpad should work without patching since kernel 3.4 or so, at least it does for me (Sentelic).

    Yes I was, in fact, idle power use seems to have dropped a bit, although I'm not sure whether this is caused by the BIOS update or something else I did.

    Is it me, or is the standby power use considerably higher with the new 211 BIOS (UX21)?

    I didn't run the commands, what I wrote is indeed not to be considered fact, since I don't know much about how SSDs work internally.

    I just had a shutdown when I unplugged. It was while compiling the kernel, so pretty heavy load.

    Not fixed for me :-(

    So basically with the new 3.3-rc5 kernel, the very first patch which enabled i915_enable_rc6 values of 0-7 is obsolete now?
    We are back to either enable or disable, but it works, am I right?
