Jerky Operation on Battery
Dual Boot: Mepis 6.0 / Windows 2000 Pro
Dell Latitude c600
1 GHz P3
256 MB SDRAM
System operates great on A/C power but when I try to operate on battery power using Mepis the operation becomes jerkey with frequent but momentary freezes (lasting a few seconds - then working - then freezing again). Plug it back in to A/C and it works fine. This only began yesterday -- has not done it before. Using Windows 2k I do not experience this problem on battery power. If anyone here can shed some light on this problem I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
By the way, thanks again for your help with my wireless card ("Wireless Woes" and "Wireless Woes Part 2"). It's still working great!
