Interesting! Setting ENABLE_LAPTOP_MODE=true really helps, but not after
start. On my ACER Extensa 5210 it helps after I unplug and plug back the
AC cord. So just after the start (if laptop started on AC) it is just as
before, but if you unplug the AC cord - the power management is beeing
set to 1 (which is acceotble for running on battery) if you plug back
the AC cord, APM is switched off. I;m going to write a startup script
which changes APM settings on startup...
