I just tried powertop (amazing tool), however I was shocked that around 70%
of my laptop's wake ups are from
" 67.5% (756.5) <interrupt> : extra timer interrupt"
Google told me, I am not running tickless (although, my kernel is
126.96.36.199-45_1.cubbi_suspend2.fc6) and the chipset on my toshiba A105
satellite laptop seem to be ICH6 Family. Do I need that patch that forces
enabling hpet timers?! If so, is there any (un)official fedora kernel that
includes the patch, as I don't like to manually track kernel upgrades. I
hope that patch will be integrated in mainstream fedora kernels soon.
