    One of the interesting features announced is the very fast sleep-to-wake time of these ultrabooks. In ubuntu, does this work, or is it just in Windows? ie:

    1) What is the average start-up time?
    2) Do you power off or hibernate/suspend? What's the wake-up time?
    The under 8-second resume for Ultrabooks is done by using the 32-GB SSD to store the paging file and load it back into memory while resuming from hibernate.

    I didn't find this feature much useful - since I installed 2 different distros - openSUSE and Ubuntu on the SSD. A cold boot takes less than 15 seconds - which is good enough for me If you boot off the regular hard drive it would be longer for sure.

    I suspend my UX32VD often. Though it loses roughly 1% battery every hour in 'suspend' mode - which is quite high. Not sure if others see the same results as me in this regard.

    Re: Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A and UX32VD

    Hi all,

    I got a new Asus Zenbook UX32VD last week and successfully installed ubuntu 12.04.
    Everything works fine. Except for the nvidia GPU. I followed the guide on the internet and this thread, installed bumblebee and latest driver of nvidia. optirun works fine.
    However, I got exactly the same problem similar to ambidextrvs:

    I also tried the kernel command line:

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/16944.../169743#169743

    But does not work for me.
    I also tried for "nomodeset"

    Now, I can only get to the login screen by switching the driver of X server into fbdev. But I lost the desktop effect.

    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier     "X.org Configured"
    	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0

    Any idea on getting the Intel Ivy Bridge GPU works again?
    Thanks.

    @wonghang: you have a 32-bit kernel for any particular reason?

    The capslock blinking error is related to a race condition on bt-usb, if I boot with a nano usb-receiver it will almost always crash. Remove the usb-receiver and it will boot normally again.

    You should also switch to ubuntu 12.10 64bit (will add native support for most hotkeys, working usb network adapter, et al.), and forget about optimus for now - there are some work going on to support this in the binary driver going forward.

    Re: Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A and UX32VD

    So, I will get my video card (intel one) working if I switch to 64 bits kernel? or I may get the video card work by blacklisting bt-usb?

    I got nvidia working with bumblebee.
    I used the computer mainly for working, and I require my GPU to work as I will write program using CUDA.

    One of the reason that I used 32bits kernel is that I had bad experience when using java applet when I was using lucid 64 bits. (And isn't on the ubuntu website that 32 bits is recommended for desktop?)

    Ok, I wasn't aware that you needed the dedicated GPU that much - I mainly chose the UX32VD for the expandability over UX31A.

    I know bumblebee has problems on quantal, so I would not advise you to move to that at the moment. The situation for the java plugin on 64bit has improved much, so there's really no difference between them (for a long period the java plugin wasn't available in 64bit java for linux).

    Blacklisting bt-usb was just to avoid the caps-lock/crash when you boot.

    To get the intel video driver working again, maybe you should try the xorg-edgers repo to get the newest graphics drivers for it ?

    Also the 3.5.x kernel series has better support for Ivy bridge (except for bumblebee afaik).

    So I guess you're a little in limbo-land at the moment, with things improving but not really ready yet.

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 64bit Version, and for me the guide for installing bumblebee worked, however I rarely use it since the performance gain doesn't feel that big, but the power consumption increases by 10 Watts.

    Code:
    user@Machine:~$ glxgears
    Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
    approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
    239 frames in 5.0 seconds = 47.650 FPS
    260 frames in 5.0 seconds = 51.842 FPS
    250 frames in 5.0 seconds = 49.999 FPS
    255 frames in 5.0 seconds = 50.829 FPS
    242 frames in 5.0 seconds = 48.242 FPS
    ^C
    user@Machine:~$ 
    user@Machine:~$ optirun glxgears

    What kernel are you using in 12.04 ?

    If you're talking to me, which I tink since you quoted my post, I'm running 12.10, and the kernel is just what I got by default from the upgrades:

    Linux Machinename 3.5.2-030502-generic #201208151151 SMP Wed Aug 15 15:52:12 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Sorry, I was talking to you - could you please share the instructions for bumblebee on 12.10 ? I have tried it for a month ago without success ;(
