OLPC looking great…

OLPC people: wow. My test-B laptop arrived yesterday morning. I assumed I would have to stick with the test-A boards for hibernate and suspend testing – but no. Of course, now I feel guilty for not doing more on the power management side of things – so as soon as exams have finished (1 more week) I'll start doing some proper work – promise.

  1. I have no idea what OLPC means, but please, please make some features in GPM that can reduce power consumption. On my Thinkpad X60s I get roughly 40% less battery life compared to WinXP.
