[SOLVED] Battery problem, battery runs out in 30 minutes with Quantal 64
Well , Win7 + VMWare Workstation + Quantal 64bit = 90 min life.
Dedicated Quantal 64bit partition can only last 30 minutes.
I've tried lowering LED Backlit and change things in powertop, but still no luck.
Intel i5 2410M
Intel® HD Graphics 3000 + nVidia Optimus GT540M (no nvidia modules loaded yet)
Thanks in advance.
it turns out i need bumblebee package even if dont intend to use the GT540M. because there's bbswitch module in bumblebee that will turn off my nvidia card. see http://wiki.ubuntu.com/bumblebee
oh yeah, in case you guys cannot load the bbswitch module (module not found) make sure your linux-image-xx and linux-headers-xx has the same version.
