I'm a newbie to linux+laptops, though I use linux at home.
I installed Suse 8.2 on gericom x5 force laptop. Everything seems to be working just fine - as far as I had time to test (little). There is one thing bothering me, it seems that the screen would not power off when I shut the lid. It's a waste of energy.
Is there something that can be tweaked?
