Re: Battery Life

spinning the HD down on my ThinkPad 560 using the 'noflushd'                    
gives me nearly 60 extra minutes of battery life. there are                     
some howtos out there, considering battery saving                               
configuration. under debian woody, i have nearly 3 hours of                     
battery life, compared to 2 in windows, using all                               
powersaving things MS provides...
