Re: high power consumtion for z12 on
I'm running a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.10 on my VPCZ12CGX/x I've
made some of the changes to my /etc/default/grub file...
my line reads as follows:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pcie_aspm=force i915.i915_enable_rc6=1"
but it only makes a very small difference.
I've hacked my bios to force my laptop into static graphics switching
and I'm running in stamina mode. Running "lspci | grep VGA" only
returns the one card on my machine:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
The return I get from the command that you request is as follows:
brett@lappy:~$ grep rate /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state
present rate: 11491 mW
Hope that you end up finding a solution!
