I deleted a now unnecessary Newbies post but I do have this issue outstanding:
When using battery power rather than AC adaptor Sabayon 7 64 bit slows down greatly - seems and sounds like the disk spins down constantly so that it seems to need to wake up every time I try to do the slightest thing like open a menu in AbiWord.
I have lost about forty minutes battery time with Sabayon also, if anything can be done about that?
Maybe this is an issue with the new kernel or with Gnome 3.2*** or maybe it's Sabayon 7 but I thought I'd ask here first.
Toshiba Equium L40 17M (mostly similar to the Satellite L40 I think), 1.6 ghz dual core, Intel 965, 500gb, 3gb
***I have found that the lag issue exists when using Fluxbox so probably Gnome 3.2 isn't the weak link.
