Problem with Powernowd

Hello everyone.

For a long time I have had problems with Ubuntu does not close properly,

I have the applet 'CPU frequency control' enabled so I can control the border, but if it is not set to 'Ondemand' when I close the laptop, then Ubuntu does not power off the computer.

I can't remove Powernowd, cause it always happens alle the time when I will shut down Ubuntu. I would really like to have it removed without the problem occurs, so how do I do?

The problem occurs only when the laptop is running on battery. :S
I am running Ubuntu 8.10 and my laptop is an HP dv6645eo.

Could it possible even make a Kernel when Powernowd which is not integrated, it will help? In that case, how is it done?

- Sorry for my bad english...
