Acer Timeline 4810G ATI adapter


can't turn off my ati adapter.
I have applied the fix, but still lspci | grep VGA gives
Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M92 LP [Mobility Radeon HD 4300 Series] (rev ff)
and my power consumption is about 15W (Wi-Fi on).

I run ubuntu 9.10, kernel 2.6.31-14-generic. BIOS version 2.30

Get onto ubuntu forums. Karmic Koala caused problems. Perhaps rebuild your kernel with an eye on acpi options.
To switch things off they have to be hot pluggable in the kernel. That should select a lot of stuff, and depend on stuff.
