Ubuntu is not at fault here and I've been using it on many laptops
without trouble. The fact is Windows seems to have no power management
at all, and is constantly using the hard disk, preventing it from

could save it, but understand that it's not easy: we can't break all
ACPI support because if some lame ducks.
