Xubuntu Laptop Mode

If like me, laptop mode is disabled, as it has been since Edgy. (Because of problems with some ThinkPads according to http://www.ubuntugeek.com/laptop-mode-tools-laptop-power-saving-package-for-linux-systems.html.)

Fire up Synaptic & install the “laptop-mode-tools” package.  You should find your HDD will spin down more often & for longer periods of time.  You can also edit the configuration file via:

sudo mousepad /etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf
