Hello !

I have just buy a new netbook, a Toshiba NB 100 111 (Windows XP version)
I have buy the XP version for install directly linux on, i just choose it for big memory, bluetooth etc.

The 110 version with preinstall Ubuntu seems to work very well, all function keys work.

But for the moment, on my intrepid fresh install, I can get working fan,screen for example.

I can't so enable cooling and my netbook is hot.

If someone buy the 110 version, i would be happy to have a feedback of all tweak and settings I must do.

Or if someone can simply say me where I can get the toshiba ubuntu ISO ?...

Thanks to help me :)

You can install Ubuntu Remix with the NB100 options, the only thing I could not get to work is the bluetooth sue the lack of a way to activate it.

The rest work perfectly, fans, suspend, etc.

I also have a toshiba nb100, i tried installing ubuntu eee but the install program couldn't find my main hard drive. So i made a fresh ubuntu 8.10 install but it was a pain to get the wireless lan working and the integrated mic on the notebook doesnt work either. it is also a little slow.

Where can i find the install for the ubuntu remix? thank you.

Hi, I too am looking for the Toshiba Ubuntu ISO.

jaureguiramirez can you point me in the direction of how you got the atheros wifi working - I am having no luck.

To install a working version of Unbutu Remix you have to download and install on a USB drive, after installation of Ubuntu Remix all should be working except Bluetooth.

To add the fan control, the LCD control, OSD Display and toshiba customziations you have to add to your apt repositories the following

and them install with
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install oem-config toshiba-conf toshiba-extras-bin toshiba-nb100-manual toshiba-osd-bin toshiba-osd-userspace toshiba-payson-unr

I used this tutorial: http://www.ipako.net/2008/11/instalando-atheros-5007eg-enubuntu-intrepid-ibex/

it's in spanish, but all you need to do is download the drivers and enter those simple commands.

I do not recoment to install Ubuntu Intrepid, because you loose the cpu optimization and power management included in the lpa version of ubuntu remix based on 8.04-1.

WIth Ibex I got 2 hours on battery with UNR iI got 3 and a half. Btw all work with out issue with UNR including wireless.

You mean that i can only run it from an USB drive? Can't it be installed in the main hard drive?

I am experiencing the same issue, on installing UNR the first time round the atheros wifi card was detected and I could scan for networks. I think I hit the fn-F2 shortcut which I believe is linked to turning on-off wifi. Now I am having some problems detecting the card.

I had read that turning wifi on/off in bios may help restart and will try that when I get home.

Any other suggestions????

I have install install network-manager 0.7 from ppa ~network-manager, this is yet the same problem, i must play wuth toggle wireless button, but the difference with 0.6 is that the nm-applet wireless wlan toggle option doesn't switch on/off, I have install it for have a good support of my 3g usb.

I have see to think too, sometine at start when i do a dmesg just after the fully environement start, i have a segfault of nautilus and bluetooth-applet. :/

Pleased to reply from my NB100 with 8.04 UNR on wireless. It seems that to get the wireless up and running I have to make sure bluetooth is toggled on. I also install WICD wifi manager which works far better than network-manager and allows connection to protected network.

Are you sure that Bluetooth is working, because as much as I check I can not get it working, the Hardy version install all and the driver is loaded but bluetooth is not working at all. On Windows Xp run perfectly.

Hi all ...

I'm new here, and this is my first post.

I'm very glad to find some other users that are experiencing problems similar to mine with the combination of Toshiba NB 100 and Linux/Ubuntu.

I've gotten my NB 100 a week ago from my company. We've decided to get the Windows version for the obvious reasons (more RAM, BT and so on ...) and I wanted to install Ubuntu as second OS, as I thought "hey, they're shipping it with this OS, so it will work".

How stupid I was.

I had some calls to Toshiba hotline ... result: Very much support for Windows ... none for Linux.
I asked them for the "Original" Distribution they ship with their Ubuntu-Version of the NB 100 ... but this is not available to the outside world.
So I tried for myself.

First try:
- Kubuntu Intrepid (I used to prefer KDE over Gnome with KDE 3, but after having some insight into KDE4 on Netbooks I will overthink that). Result: installation worked fine, but no WLAN running!

Second try:
- Ubuntu-eee (non-Canonical offshoot of Intrepid, I think; Netbook Remix). Result: WLAN worked fine, but the OS did not recognize the Hard Discs, so no installation possible

Third try:
- Ubuntu Hardy ... installation worked fine, but no WLAN.
But I seem to have lost the track: What do I actually need to get my WLAN running? The thing Cryptonome wrote (=> get this Netbook Remix edition, which desktop I do not very like) and add the toshiba-packages?
I tried to add the toshiba-things (oem-config, toshiba-conf and so on) but I got lost in dependency chaos (there were always missing dependencies like "language-installer" or other)
I tried this, too (I tried to guess the correct way, as I do not speak spanish), but it had no effect.

Or maybe it is a problem of Gnomes Network Manager applet? (I do not find Entries for my WLAN there).

Well, I seem to need help. I am a programmer myself, but still quite new to the Linux world, so this whole "compile the kernel"-stuff scares the **** out of me. Anyhow, I would be grateful to get a working (with all hardware options) NB100. Could someone please help me?

Maybe one could summarize all needed steps to get a working Linux on a NB 100 from steps like "download the ISO image here", "do this to make a bootable USB stick from it", "install to hard drive", "add these repositories" "get these packages" and finally "have fun with your WLAN"?

I'm completely lost and slightly frustrated ...

Hi all,

For install ubuntu on this netbook, use Ubuntu Network Remix, read this page, all is explain for install it :

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UNR

Thanks for you help EGottlieb December 11th, 2008, 04:43 PM Hi Everyone, I notice that people are having varied results with the install of Ubuntu on the NB100 and wanted to tell how I was able to do this. First of all, I purchased the Windows XP version of the NB100, but my end goal was to have a dual-boot system with both XP and Ubuntu. I really wanted it to have the "official" Ubuntu install as if I had purchased it with this, and also get the benefits of the LPIA kernel, so I went with the UNR 1.0.1 deployment package. I setup my system as follows: 1) Downloaded http://oem-images.canonical.com/unr/unr-1.0.1.iso and burned the ISO image to a DVD 2) Booted from this and installed on the NB100. Note that this installer is NOT like the standard Ubuntu installer and does not allow you to pick a partition. It will wipe all partitions and do it's own install. 3) Downloaded gparted boot image and created a bootable CD for this. Used this to shrink the Ubuntu partition to 10 GB and copy it to the 2nd partition. Created a partition with the rest (about 100GB) for Windows. To make it more clear -- after I was done booting the gparted CD and modifying the partitions, I had a 100 GB partition labeled as NTFS first (on the left in the gparted graph) and my 10 GB Ubuntu partition on the right side. Note that it is REQUIRED for the Toshiba XP restore disk that Windows be on the first partition. This move of Ubuntu to the new 2nd partition screws up grub, but we'll fix that later. 4) Now I booted from the XP restore CD that came in my NB100 box. At the first screen I chose "advanced" or something like that at the bottom which brought up a dialog box to let me choose to either wipe the disk (NO!!) or install on a partition. When I chose to install on an existing partition, it offered me the first partition (100GB). If you did not move Ubuntu to the 2nd partition with gparted, it will want to overwrite it. 5) After restoring XP to the large partition, when I rebooted, I got only a message saying "Error 17". This is grub complaining that it can't find the Ubuntu installation. Now you need a regular Ubuntu 8.04 or 8.10 installation boot CD. Boot into the live CD session, mount your Ubuntu partition, and edit the ./boot/grub/grub.conf file. You need to make the following changes: a) for both Ubuntu boot images, root (hd0,0) needs to change to root (hd0,1) b) for both boot images, set the kernel boot line to include "root=/dev/sda2" c) add the line for Windows XP as follows: title Microsoft Windows XP Home root (hd0,0) makeactive chainloader +1 d) set the timout parameter as appropriate for the number of seconds you want before booting in to the default OS e) load the changes in to the MBR as follows: sudo grub root (hd0,1) setup (hd0) quit Now grub is all set and you just need to adjust your ./etc/fstab file to change the mounting of the root partition from /dev/sda1 to /dev/sda2 Note I am using ./boot/grub/menu.lst and ./etc/fstab because these are the ones located in the Ubuntu partition, NOT the ones on the current root directory (those are the live CD files and won't help you!). 6) Now you should be able to reboot and get the grub menu. Test to be sure that you can boot into both XP and Ubuntu. Finally, follow the directions in the earlier post about adding the payson sources to the source file and to the apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; apt-get install toshiba-payson-unr Now you should be all set. If anyone tries this and runs in to trouble, let me know and I can help or post my grub menu.lst file. Good luck!

Try installing the other packages instead of the whole payson pack: toshiba-config toshiba-nb100-manual toshiba-osd-bin toshiba-osd-userspace my system updated these (except the manual, which must not have changed). mustardseed December 12th, 2008, 04:07 PM If you look at: https://code.launchpad.net/~canonical-fae-team/payson/toshiba-payson-unr at the recent changes for at the recent changes you can see that dependencies on the eula and topi were added recently. I realise that this doesn't solve the problem but it does explain why this package is no longer installable whereas it worked in the past. It also says the eula and topi packages are now available in payson repo. Perhaps someone with more experience can decode this? sandman652001 December 12th, 2008, 07:10 PM Yes I installed the separate packages and everything seems to be working but it still annoys me to death ;) it's like having a messy room:D.

I just copied bits and pieces from many sources and cleaned it all up so it would be easier for people like me to install UNR on their Toshiba NB100. At the bottom of the guide you will find links to the original posts or guides that I used. To install UNR on your Toshiba download the following image http://oem-images.canonical.com/unr/unr-1.0.1.img From a Ubuntu PC Download and install USB-Image writer http://ppa.launchpad.net/ogra/ubuntu/pool/main/u/usb-imagewriter/usb-imagewriter_0.1-1~ppa1_all.deb Plug in a usb pen drive(at least 1 Gb) Then run the Image Writer tool from the accessories menu, select the downloaded image, select the target device and click on "Write to device".. From a windows command prompt . 1.Download flashnul from http://shounen.ru/soft/flashnul/ 2.At the command prompt run: flashnul -p 3.Note the physical device number for the target USB disk. 4.At the command prompt run: flashnul <number obtained in prior step> -L \path\to\unr-<version>.img 5.Answer "yes" after verifying the destination device. Once it finished unmount the usb drive and plug it in to your netbook Start your NB100 press F12 at the initial screen and select USB Memory as the boot device. Follow the instructions to install UNR. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FACT THAT THE INSTALLATION OF UNR WILL DELETE EVERYTHING ON YOU DRIVE! Including WINDOWS XP! Once the install is finished open a command prompt and type sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following to the end of the file deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/payson/ubuntu hardy main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/payson/ubuntu hardy main save and close it then type sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install toshiba-payson-unr if that does not work(at the moment of writing there seems to be a problem) sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install toshiba-config toshiba-nb100-manual toshiba-osd-bin toshiba-osd-userspace TWEAK FOR BOOTUP SPEED (Optional): To decrease boot time, activate concurrency bootup: sudo gedit /etc/init.d/rc and replace the line: CONCURRENCY=none with CONCURRENCY=shell Install preload, it loads in to memory parts of the programs that you use most often(NEW)(I'm told that people that have less than 1 Gb of ram have problems with this) sudo aptitude install preload no configuration needed TWEAKS FOR POWERSAVING (Optional): Add the following to the /etc/rc.local file: # As in the rc.last.ctrl of Linpus echo ondemand > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor echo ondemand > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_governor cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/ondemand/sampling_rate_max > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/ondemand/sampling_rate echo 1500 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_writeback_centisecs echo 20 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_ratio echo 10 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_background_ratio echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/sched_smt_power_savings echo 10 > /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save echo 5 > /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode #Decrease power usage of USB while idle [ -w /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-5/power/level ] && echo auto > /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-5/power/level [ -w /sys/bus/usb/devices/5-5/power/level ] && echo auto > /sys/bus/usb/devices/5-5/power/level (NEW)Adding a swap file to solve suspend issues The following solved my suspend issues Sample method of creating and using a swap file: (The preceding hash (#) means that the command should be ran as root) 1) Create the file (2GB in this example): # dd if=/dev/zero of=/swap bs=1024 count=2097152 2) Make it usable as swap: # mkswap /swap 3) Edit fstab so it may be used on startup # echo -e "/swap\tnone\tswap\tsw\t0 0" >> /etc/fstab 4) Activate it for use immediately # swapon -a we owe this one to Rolcol Maximising screen real estate in Firefox: To take your screen saving netbook remix to the next level, you can do the following to maximise screen real estate in everyone's most used app - Firefox - Install the following addons Stop or Reload Button Personal Menu AutoHideStatusBar (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1530) Fission it combines address bar and progress bar (Safari style).

You can easily repackage any deb outside the repos into an lpia one. And really there aren't many. The reason you want lpia packages instead of forcing the i386, is that while the former will show up as an installed package on Synaptics, the later won't, so good luck uninstalling it. For example here's the directions to convert the stock i386 package for Skype into an lpia package: 1. Download the Ubuntu version of Skype 2. Use the Archive manager to uncompress it. Alternatively, right click on the deb package and select "extract here" 3. Rename the uncompressed folder, by changing the ending from i386 to lpia. (the folder should be now named: skype-debian_2.0.0.72-1_lpia) 4. Open the folder 5. There are 3 files. remove the debian-binary file 6. Decompress control.tar.gz. There are tree files in it. 7. Make a folder "DEBIAN" in the main folder, and placed the 3 files you just decompressed inside it. 8. Open one of the files inside DEBIAN, "control". Change the line "Architecture: i386" into "Architecture: lpia" 9. Open the other archive data.tar.gz. There is a folder "." inside. Open it (double click). Select both the folders (usr and etc) and select uncompress. 10. Remove the files control.tar.gz and data.tar.gz 11. You should now have your main folder with the following inside: DEBIAN folder with tree text files in it (conffiles, control, md5sums); a "usr" folder and a "etc" folder. 12. You are now ready to prepare your lpia deb folder. 13. From the command line, go to the folder that contains your main skype folder you just prepared (most likely named: skype-debian_2.0.0.72-1_lpia). 14. type: dpkg --build skype-debian_2.0.0.72-1_lpia 15. Your deb package is ready. Double click on it and follow instruction. After installation it should appear in Synaptic, and from there you can remove it at any time.

, besides if you want to install XP on it you can use any XP disk and download the drivers from the Toshiba website

Nothing more? Oh, that's nice from Toshiba. I think they have figured out, that it would be an extremely mess to provide the same courtesy for Linux (at least, that is, what the Toshiba Support in Germany told me ... what a shame).

Oh, here another one:
I do have the german keyboard layout version ("QWERTZ") of the Toshiba. This layout has the nice anomaly, that the "Pipe"-Character ("|") lies on the "x"-key - and should be accessible via the "FN"-Command-Key (=> FN + x).
Problem is: it wouldn't. Neither in Windows XP nor in Ubuntu the FN + x combo would produce a proper "|"; Linux shells will produce a single ">>"-sign that would not really work as pipe in scripts :-(.
With Windows, that would be ok for me, with Linux this is a big problem!

Has anybody else this problem?

hello all
i already tried unr install from bootable usb disk, made by dd from unr-1.0.1.img
it works ok however it wipes out my windows xp
since xp is paid for i see no arm in keeping it
besides i need it for my checkpoint vpn client

since XP recovery disk from toshiba allows me to create /dev/sda1 with variable size, for example 100 GB, i could live with ubuntu in my other 60 gb

as anyone tried to customize install.sh present in usb_boot image to "NOT" wipe the disk but to install only in /dev/sda2 ??

Hi!!
First of all, thanks you, all this information has been very usefull to install ubuntu in my new brand nb100.

All works fine except the fans. I have ubuntu intrepid (the problem is this?) , I put
in the source list and I tried:
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install toshiba-config toshiba-nb100-manual toshiba-osd-bin toshiba-osd-userspace

but there was erros. Brightness and wifie controls from keyboard works but the fun doesnt work (wathing a film the temperature is very high and fun still keep dead)

Do I have to use ubuntu hardly?...
Are the fun controls in this packages?

Thanks!!!

Hi,
I have try yesterday intrepid too, and now, i will reinstall form unr.img tonight, the problem? Payson ppa doesn't provide yet their tweak for intrepid, there is any package for intrepid, so no osd for fan, toggle screen fn key working etc...

If anyone done the install of intrepid lpia with all tweak, key, osd working tell me it :)

:(

January 28th, 2009, 10:49 AM
Aham, thx.

The point is that it doesnt matter that osd for fan not work, the problem is that when temperature is high, the fan doesnt start!!!!, so you cant use the netbook to watch video or something that requires intensive calculations.
Payson ppa is only for osd or controls the fan automatically also?

Hi there ...

Just in case it might help someone, I was able to remap the "|"-character to a key of my choice (doing this by editing the latin keymap of the X-server); if anybody needs to know how, I can go on the topic further.

Now I will try to do the same remapping for the basic Linux system below, as of course the remapping does not work on console, just with X.

BTW: does anybody know if those PPA guys are working on a solution for Intrepid, too?

Hi ... this is, what I sent as a PM to another User:

I solved the pipe character-problem the following way:
For the X-server there are a lot of keymaps saved; plain text files that say which key or action is to be executed by pressing any key. These keymaps are organized in the filesystem under /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols.

I wanted to map "|" to AltGr + x, as this way of remapping seemingly does not work with the Fn-Key.

Now you have to find out, what keymap you are using. For me, it is "de". The localized map itself won't help you, you must find, where the base map lies. In the "de" map there is an entry 'include "latin(type4)"'. That means, the base key mapping for "de" is found in the keymap "latin". Open this file (/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/latin) as root with a text editor.
The "type4" section is irrelevant; the mapping for the "x" key is found the "basic" section (=> 'kxb_symbols "basic" { ...').
Here is an entry
"key <AB02> {[x, X, guillemotright, greater]}";
maybe there are other entries for you. The first entry means "simply striking x key", the second entry means "shift + x", the third "AltGr + x", the fourth I don't know yet ;-)
As I wanted to map the Pipe to AltGr + x I replaced the third entry (guillemotright) with the code for the pipe ("bar"), so now my entry reads
"key <AB02> {[x, X, bar, greater]}".
(it might be wise to let the old line in the file and just comment it out with //).

Now you have to restart X server, or reboot. And you should have the Pipe character.

This way only works while working on the desktop, i.e. GNOME, KDE or other. It won't work if you go into console without any X server. But I'm sure, there is a similar solution here.

Of course you can reassign "bar" to any other key combination, and you have replace my keymap with the one that you use. Just make sure, you have a copy of the original keymap ;-)

The "azerty"-Layout must be the "fr"-keymap, which is based on "latin" as well, so my solution should work for you as well.
But, alas ... as far as I know that kind of remapping does not work with FN-keys, as FN keys are some things that proprietary things from the manufacturer. There is a GNOME-tool that prints out all input events, so you have to find out what kind of event the FN-combo submits, but at the moment I do not know, what that tool's name was :-(.

By the way ... not a GNOME- Tool but a X tool: xev

Hi,
For those who still search for the microphone problem solution for Toshiba nb100 netbook , I have found one, I think.

Just run in terminal:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base

and add a line at the bottom of the file:

options snd-hda-intel model=toshiba position_fix=1 enable=yes

reboot and then in skype change default snd devices to HDA intel (hw;intel,0)

Worked like a charm in my case. Sound in skype will be mono but really who cares. and there will be sudden issues with firefox. If you play a youtube movies, for example, skype has a audioplayback problem. So quit firefox for a sec, establish a call in skype and reload the browser.
I spent a month on this, reinstalled ubuntu several times, but finally - everything works on toshiba nb 100 dual boot with xp/ubuntu 8.10
So if you have further questions, I'd be glad to help if I can.
And don't install kernel update 2.6.27-11 it ruins network. use program kernelcheck to install latest kernel , to this date it's 2.6.28-5. Then everything works fine but the wireless. For wireless i found a thread which works for my netbook, I'll try to find it again.

Aikimox, thanks, i will try this at home tonight.

Atlas95, i replaced in my nb100 the harddisk, from a 120 gb to a 320 gb. It was quite some work, but not impossible.
I found these steps on another forum, if you follow them carefully it is no problem to replace your hard disk:

1. Remove the battery, turn the unit over and press the power button for a few seconds to remove any residual power in the motherboard.

2. Turn the unit over and remove every screw you can see, there are 11 I think. There is also one under where the battery sits.

3. Turn the unit over and open up the screen, now prize up the cover where the power button is from either end.

4. There is one screw either side under this cover holding the keyboard down, remove them.

5. CAREFULLY lift up the keyboard from the top, under it you will see a ribbon cable in the lower centre, unclip the locking bar and gently pull out the ribbon from the motherboard. Now you will see the HDD on the left side under the cover, thats where you need to get.

6. Youll see in the lower right corner a small ribbon connector, for the touchpad, unclip and remove it gently.
There are two connectors in the centre with cables coming from the display, disconnect them and unhook the wiring.

7. Under an insulator strip at the top right of the motherboard there are two connectors for aerials, unclip them.

8. There are two screws, either side at the top holding the display, remove them and the display will be removeable.

9. Remove every screw you can find in the top cover of the lower half, and gently prise it from the underside, separating the two halves, if it wont separate, youve missed one, have a closer look.

10. You can now remove the two screws securing the HDD in (on the left of it) Unclip the HDD, turn it over and youll see four screws holding the HDD to the bracket, remove them, and refit the bracket to your new HDD.

11. Refitting is a complete reversal of removal, bearing in mind that some of the screws are different lenghts, you must replace them in their original positions.

Hi Guys,

Got my NB100 last night, and had found this thread earlier in anticipation of getting Ubuntu on it first thing :D

So following the steps on page 4, I installed Ubuntu UNR from a USB stick with no dramas at all. Out of the box, everything seemed to work fine (as far as I can tell). I did have problems installing the payson package, but I went and installed the packages individually, and they all went on ok apart from the osd package. What does this actually do?
After reading other peoples problems, I have no idea about the fan, and I tested the webcam/mic with Skype and it works without any dramas.
Also, what app do people use for Bluetooth? As far as I can tell, it's installed and running, but I have no idea how to actually test it :P

Anyway, thanks a lot for the guide, and everyones input to this. It certainly made the whole process painless!

Kernel 2.6.27-11-generic stops the wired network connection working.

You can get the wired network connection working again with the following from a terminal window

cd /lib/modules/2.6.27-11-generic/kernel
mv net netx
depmod -a

reboot and when it comes back up the wired network now working properly.

Couldn't find that anywhere on google. I hopes that helps somebody.

Hi everyone,

As several other people, I bought this laptop (the windows version) thinking of installing linux in it - the thing is, at least for now I wanted to keep windows as well, having both of them in dual boot. I installed Ubuntu 8.10, but it's been a real pain to try and get the wireless and some other stuff working, so I was wondering how I should do so that I could install the UNR without losing the windows installation - or even better, which is the easiest way to configure this without having to resort to a new installation of a OS at all.

I may confirm excellent result with Jaunty beta UNR on the NB100 in order to have a dual boot (XP e Ubuntu UNR) machine.
Comparing to EasyPeasy 1.0 I got big improvements: my microphone is working at last, I got also higher max sound emission and desktop-switcher and cheese work 'out the box'.
Many thanks to Canonical and to the entire Ubuntu/Debian/Gnu/Linux community for these marvellous results.

I may confirm that you loose the CPU optimization with Ubuntu Intrepid, and the worse was that I could'nt get it back when I re-installed the original OS Hardy 8.04. My motherboard has been changed and now it works again !
I tried Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix, and I still loose the CPU optimization. Is there anyone who could resolve this problem ?

Hi!

I just want to share a few solutions in case someone meets the same problems as I did:

Suspend/Hibernate didn't work after installing payson stuff

I deleted the file /etc/pm/sleep.d/20toshiba or something similar

To get powertop suggestions permanent for better power saving

\$sudo nano /etc/default/acpi-support
ENABLE_LAPTOP_MODE=true

Then enable all the modules that you want to in /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/ but at least:
hal-polling. Change device to /dev/cdrom
intel-sata-powermgmt

I hope someone finds these instructions usefull
