I start wondering anyway if the larger power consumption is due to the
I guess, instead (I see Henrique' s point!) , the consumption of come
linux component is higher and thus leads to a warmer processor which
leads in turn to an increased fan speed...
Is someone willing to step by step unload the lenovo drivers from vista
and check which deleted driver results in a higher consumption?
Then, perhaps we can identify the bad guy.
Is there a program like powertop for windows?
