    Re: Acer Timeline 4810T

    I recently (foolishly) updated to lucid and since then the lenenvo work around has gone, I now get less than 3 hours from my battery when before I was getting almost 8.

    Anyone know a fix? I've got powertop already and thats not helping much.

    Also seems to be running allot hotter than before.

    I'm getting better time than that on my 5810. what kernel are you using and have you run dmesg in terminal after boot to look for any problems there?

    it should also be noted that the brightness key error (in karmic and lucid at least) appears to be a compiz bug and doesn't happen with metacity compositing or when compositing is disabled.

    there is a kernel PPA which would allow you to try 2.6.34 and the maverick builds of 2.6.35 if you want to see if one of them works better. As for checking dmesg, I normally just scroll through it looking for jumps in the time stamps and then if there is a jump (i.e. a few seconds vs a fractions of a sec) I look for an error message of some sort and run to google with it.
