There are still a few things I'd like to get working at some point so if anyone is reading this and has any suggestions I'd love to hear them. :-) Most are pretty low priority/eye candy type stuff.

  • I'd like to have something like MacBooks where they "gradually" dim when idle as opposed to "entirely on" and "entirely off". I think that would come in handy when I just have my notebook open as a reference or something where I could still read it but not need it sitting there sucking my battery dry at full illumination.
 xbacklight -set 30 -time 60000  <--dim over a minute
  • Anything to extend battery life. I haven't really looked into it but I'd like to find a way to scale the core voltage as well as frequency. I've seen Intel utilities that can do that on Windows desktops but nothing so far for Linux
  • A way to kill the wireless card in software. This notebook comes with a button right by the power button to kill the wireless. It's not a big deal to hit the button I guess but it would be pretty neat if there was a way to simulate hitting the button in case I forget or I lose wireless connection for extended periods. I'm not even sure if this is possible or how it could be done, though.
