I'm having a problem when booting up on battery power, I allways get this error:
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 34

when runing gl-117 after booting pluged in I get ~40 fps
when booting on battery power I only get around ~12 fps

This has been present with all kernels I have tested, standard lenny to the one I'm using now (2.6.24-rc2-git2)

Xid:34 often refers to an insufficient GPU power problem.

I see that you're using this option:
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "NoPowerConnectorCheck"

Does X not start without that option?

without it I get this:
