    [SOLVED] Since Hardy, no laptop mode when on AC power

    In Gutsy Gibbon I was able to make laptop mode active when on AC power. In Hardy Heron, configuring "/etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf" file to "ENABLE_LAPTOP_MODE_ON_AC=1" does not have any effect. Laptop mode tools are working when on battery power, but I want to have them working when on AC power as well - because of the great heat reduction on Dell D600.

    I've tried to resolve the problem by downloading the latest Debian laptop-mode-tools package, it didn't help.

    Re: Since Hardy, no laptop mode when on AC power

    I am newbie so I do not understand why, but the only way I can enable laptop mode when on AC power is to execute, every time when I restart my computer, a following command: "sudo /etc/init.d/laptop-mode reload". Maybe I have to change something in that file or I have to make "sudo /etc/init.d/laptop-mode reload" to be executed every time I restart....

    Please help me, the reason why I got into Linux world first place was that with the help of laptop-mode-tools I could conveniently cool down my Dell D600, model that has a well known heat issue.
