Can anyone tell me what the policy on powermanagement is for Hardy? I
experience some problems with the current implementation, and wanted to
ask here before filing bug reports.
One of the Xubuntu machines i use here is a Dell XPS M1330, which
suffers from some major problems under Hardy. For instance:
1) The backlight doesn' t go off when closing the lid (is this a Xubuntu
or Nvidia issue?).
2) The system doesn't hibernate when the battery empties but just shuts
down, losing all open applications.
I don't see any powersaving methods running in the background such as
xcreensaver-daemon or gnome-powermanagement (are they supposed to?).
Actually, it might be that no powermanagement is happening at all, i
should have to test some more scenarios for more information.
I hope you can all forgive me for asking this while other overheated
discussions are going on, but as it's really quite critical for using
Hardy on notebooks i dediced to bring it on anyway.
