  unreasonably high power consumption in precise

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  What happens:
  Under Ubuntu 12.04, the system's power consumption is around 32 Watts idle, which is unbelievably high compared to the 12 Watts consumed by Ubuntu 10.04. I believe this could be a kernel problem.

  What should happen:
  The system's total consumption should be around 12 Watts.

  - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
