View Full Version : [ubuntu] Is laptop mode fixed in 8.10 now?

April 7th, 2010, 02:21 PM
Acer aspire 5100, I read about laptop mode issues remaining present from 8.04 to 8.10. I also found a proposed solution here http://www.theusefulblog.com/post/ubuntu-hdparm-apm-and-laptop-mode-tools/ my 90-hdparm.sh files, all 3 or so of them are a little different then the one shown in the workaround method. Here's how mine look:

if [ -e /usr/sbin/laptop_mode ] ; then
LMT_CONTROL_HD_POWERMGMT=$(. /etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf && echo "$CONTROL_HD_POWERMGMT")
&& [ -e /var/run/laptop-mode-tools/enabled ]
#Laptop mode controls hdparm -B settings, we don't.

Seeing as this workaround previously mentioned was posted back in 2008, I was wondering if the issue had been fixed in a later update, hence the variation in my 90-hdparm.sh files or is there still an issue?
