  • Undervolting (Fusion not supported by undervolting tools yet)
  • CPU throttling (is this needed?)
  • Correct ALSA soundcard order (is anyone else having this problem?)
  • Broadcom wireless
  • Catalyst Vs. Open Source ATI drivers
  • Underclock/Overclock video card
  • MISC power saving options


Fan Control

The X120e's fan spins constantly but luckily can be controlled by the user.

Warning: Modify fan settings at your own risk, only you are responsible if you toast your laptop or your lap.

to enable manual fan control place the following into /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf

options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1

TODO: Discuss different fan control daemons

NOTE: Until undervolting is possible it seems as if the fan actually does need to spin constantly
