Notes about getting better power management out of Linux when running on a Thinkpad X300, like the one I have been so frustrated with recently that I gave it the hostname “aggravator”. I get maybe 90 minutes out of its battery, currently. I was thinking about replacing its DVD player with a second battery, but I’m reluctant to throw even more money at this thing when its reliability has been so underwhelming thus far.


  1. What do you think about the made ‘fer linux laptops like System 76? Have any friends with one of those?

  2. Interesting – I don’t think I was aware of those. They look nice; I’ll have to find out more. Thanks!
