    Question PowerMizer performance levels on a TP T61p

    Hi,
    I have just installed Karmic on a T61p and am using the latest nvidia proprietary drivers through restricted driver manager. My question / problem is as follows:
    The powermizer setting never goes below the medium setting (275/301MHz) when most of the time it should be at the lowest (169/100MHz). This contributes to the short battery life I'm experiencing on this machiene under Ubuntu (but not XP).

    Any help on how to get powermizer to default lower speeds greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    PS: Is this something I could / should file a bug against? I guess not given that the nvidia driver is closed binary blob?
