Intel PowerTOP

Intel is releasing PowerTOP, a tool that helps you find what software is using the most power. By fixing (or closing) these applications or processes, you can immediately see the power savings in the tool. You'll also see the estimated time left for battery power if you are running a laptop.

PowerTOP is a Linux tool that finds the software component(s) that make your laptop use more power than necessary while it is idle. As of Linux kernel version 2.6.21, the kernel no longer has a fixed 1000Hz timer tick. This will (in theory) give a huge power savings because the CPU stays in low power mode for longer periods of time during system idle.

Maybe you should wait for the next version of Ubuntu !

"For Feisty, xresprobe is not included in the default installation. 

In theory, this should not be an issue for most people, however I think for people
who don't have xresprobe installed, if they reconfigure Xorg then the new xorg.conf file
could result in incomplete monitor detection, and thus lead to this bug. 

This could also occur if the user installed a new monitor or video card and
re-ran `sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver- xorg` without first installing xresprobe. 

It could also occur if a user upgrades from Edgy or Dapper to Feisty, and xresprobe
gets uninstalled, and then the user reconfigures xorg. 

As I understand, this was a unique change for Feisty, and wouldn't affect Edgy or Dapper
users since as I understand xresprobe was installed by default in those.

For gutsy we've altered things such that xresprobe is once again installed by default,
so behavior should at least return to where it was with Edgy and Dapper. 

In at least one dupe of this bug, having xresprobe present seems to have helped. 

See bug 109908."
