Going to be running Slackware on my laptop what are the things I need to worry about
 
I have a gateway laptop I don't have all the spec's but from what I remember

AMD Turion 64 X2
Nvidia Geforce go 6100 (nvidia says that it will be supported in the 9xxx series of drivers)
80gb IDE Hard Drive (60gb - Winfows XP/Vista, 1gb - Linux swap, 16gb - Linux root)
some sort of wireless card that is supported by Linux
Sigmatel audio card (still can't get it to work but I think it is supported in alsa 1.0.12)
nforce 4 stuff (this stuff is all supported in 6.17 series of the kernel)

I've been doing some research but I have no idea where to start to make all the power saving features work. I'm going to be using kde, if you need to know that. Thanks in advance.

P.S. just in case I confused anyone I would just like to know how to make all the power saving features work, and if possible how to do it for slackware 11

:confused: :confused: :confused:

For power saving check out this thread, the guy there recomends some good sites.
