Comment 81 for bug 563156

Thanks Chen Chen. But I really don't wish to downgrade. And yes, from my previous post, ATI-AMD has deprecated the ATI Mobility Radeon X1300; So no fglrx option for my card. Hence the urgency to fix this issue.

This article: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=amd_r500_power&num=1 published in March of last year is happy with the open source driver on power management. Considers it comparable (or better) to fglrx. And it was tested in the same laptop (Thinkpad T60) that I have. Unfortunately that progress seems to have been stunted with 10.04. :(
