BIOS (F2 at start-up) and disabled much of the video items and left
the hard disk on the power management screen. Will wait for nvidia to
get a APM or BIOS to get APIC???
I can go in and out of screen saver. I get a battery performance hit,
but I don't have to reboot. I am not sure of most but I develop
software with Linux and now somethings but not others and this will be
a working laptop.
I also had to make sure that I didn't have any "non-working" or
configured services loaded. root@XXX]#setup Irda was one that
conflicted with my sound card setup for example. I will have to check
the postings for ways to set that up along with the firewire.
Hope that helps, inform me if there are better ways? klk
