    For those that their Zenbook dies after unplugging power cable.

    I had the same issue and I was trying every kernel release with hope that it finally fixes this problem and I'm happy to announce that seems that kernel 3.6 is fixing it.

    Zero sudden deaths after unplugging since I'm using this kernel release.

    Nope, this still occurs with 3.6. At least for me. Which Bios Version are you running? I am still on 211.

    I know this does not make any sense at all, but still:
    I swtiched to Fedora 17, 3.5.4-2.fc17.x86_64 and have no poweroffs at all. Same old 210 BIOS causing all the troubles with ubuntu. I did nothing, just installed a Fedora from scratch. Could it be related to 32/64 bit systems? I used to run Ubuntu 32 (-pae kernel) when I had the shutdowns.

    I just upgraded my Bios to 213 (latest) and can confirm fenski's observations. No poweroff after plugging in or out the power cord. I dont think it has something to do with 32/64 bit architectures.

    About the screen going blank after upgrading to 12.10 Beta:
    DPMS is not the problem, it is just about the X screensaver settings, so the following does the trick:
    Code:
    xset s off
    Just run this once after (every) startup and the screen stays active desired. Does anyone know how to make this static?

    New WiFi reports for kernel 3.6. At the beginning connection quality stays where it reasonably should be, but after few seconds it drops back to poor old values
    Code:

    Try to de- and reactivate bluetooth multiple times. Bluetooth doesn't seem to initialize everytime correct. I've always to de- and reactivate bluetooth multiple times to get it work (but on the UX31A, maybe it's another bug on the UX31E).

    Re: Ubuntu and the asus zenbook (UX31)

    Guys, I just upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10 and the good news are that multitouch on my sentelic touchpad works out of the box (No need to compile custom kernel).

    But it behaves strange when I try to scroll with two fingers horizontally or touch it with three fingers. It either randomly scrolls somewhere or start scrolling left-right very fast.

    Anyone knows how to deal with it? Make many finger gestures usable or at least turn it off?

    P.S. Weird behavior mostly fixed by disabling horizontal scrolling. Steel looking for better solution.

    Re: Ubuntu and the asus zenbook (UX31)

    So we are sure wifi problems are caused by a kernel issue ?
    Network Manager has nothing to do with it (as discussed in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/971809), has it ?
