  high power consumption on Asus X4GS(N43SN)

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This bug report is about the high power consumption. The battery time
  i get on Windows 7 Home Premium is between 3 and 4 hours. On Ubuntu
  Oneiric I get between 1,5 and 2 hours (with ca. 28-32W power

  When I install nvidia drivers (nvidia-current) the power consumption
  decreases to 22-25 W. But then the 3D mode isn't available and Unity
  2D starts. I don't know how to fix this, but this is another problem.

  When running Ubuntu the fan is always medium-fast to fast. When
  running windows 7 the fan is usually slow and sometimes medium-fast.
