Thanks for your response. This problem is already described here
a) my distro maintainer already sent you an email with nvidia-bug-report (we've got same hardware) yesterday.
b) doesn't nvidia-bug-report dump all that information? I'm not in front of my laptop now, so I'll add that info later.
c) Powermizer stucks on lowest performance level all the time. If I change it to "use max values" - it changes from level 0 to level 1 (out of 0...3 available). Powermizer doesn't change performance levels when left in "adaptive" mode no matter the load.
Is there any way to completely disable powermizer? Simple on/off switch would be awesome. Is it possible to implement? nvidia-settings report almost everything as read-only :S
