Right, acpi=off is not an option. CPU scaling is turned off, so the CPU runs
very hot, CPU fan hits max speed, so battery life is shot to heck, and
pressing the power button just makes the laptop go dead instantly.

Running with mem=4000m and Ubuntu says it has 2.9gb available :( that'l have
to do for now...
