Some laptops are NOT affected by the 2.6.38 power bug. That's the only reason why z06gal can get normal battery life. And my HP Pavilion dv6730ed also has normal battery life after a BIOS update.
Interesting (about doing a BIOS update)....i have a 2 1/2 year old Toshiba Laptop and never tried to update the BIOS...going to their site, there appears to be at least 2 updates for my particular model...Are there any risks in doing these kind of updates? If there are two (posted on different dates) would you do both or the last one shown? Any tips about this? thanks
