"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall — think of it, always." Mohandas Gandhi
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act. George Orwell

Estas dicas ajudam a resolver no Ubuntu alguns desses problemas:

The goal of this project is to enable Linux to take advantage of platforms that support ACPI (Advanced Configuration & Power Interface).

ACPI has been supported on virtually all high-volume i386, x86_64, and ia64 systems, since 1999.

ACPI is an abstraction layer between the OS andplatform firmware and hardware.

This abstraction allows the OS and the platform to evolve independently.
Not only should a new OS be able to handle old hardware, but an old OS should be able to handle new hardware.

The latest ACPI specification is published on the ACPI home page:
