high power consumption on a T20
I have recently noticed that my power consumtion on my T20 is about
twice as high as windoze. With a full charged (new) battery and using
an external monitor, linux thinks that I have about 1:45 hours of
computing time. Under nt I get something like 3:45!
Has anyone else noticed this? Is it a) linux? b) apmd (I am using woody
and 2.2.17--hopefully with all the correct options)?
My memory (faulty at best) recalls that I use to get much better times
that this...but I don't know what change I have made could have lead to
these problems. I have hunted through the docs/faqs etc, but I can't
see anything particularly relevent.
Would upgrading to 2.4.0-testX would be a good idea?
thanks for any help
