Have a look at your BIOS settings for power. If there is nothing abnormal there, then I would look into the power related modules in Ubuntu. Some hardware will scale down CPU speed, usually slower for battery power, to conserve power, so yours seems to be working backwards.
Hey there, I'm new to all this linux stuff and am having the same problem... Could you explain how you did this?
Hard to understand why this problem exists but luckily easy to overcome. You can use Synaptic or adept, doesnt matter which one. Install linux-image , linux-headers , linux-restricted-modules packages the version you want but for 386. Normally generic kernel is installed and generic versions can stay just incase. You can choose 386 while booting and if it works later if you want you can remove generics, keep in mind having more kernels just waste of space but will not harm the system.
I just noticed it with luck. Now i am really happy with my system. good luck.
Hibernate. I tried but it just sometime worked. And booting time is same as getting up from hibernation, so i gave up. But suspend generally works but anyway i dont use it either. If suspend will work %100 i think i'll start using it but hibernation need (expected) to be faster.
