a brief summary for those who do not want to read the whole thread:
1. X crash on battery power with XID error -> laptop cannot be used in battery mode
2. Nvidia-setting don't switch from AC to battery and from battery to AC when the notebook is powered on... (of course ACPI is good working)
3. no switch to 3d Freq. in powermizer
4. and last, but the most impressive, in "SUPPORTED DEVICES" is STILL PRESENT that crappy video card even if it's NOT WORKING
If I'm not wrong the 260m was launched on the market on March 3, 2009. Today is April 24, 2010. by now is an "old" video card... someone is still pretending to work on it? well done... but... sincerely, I don't believe it and I don't expect any improvement...
I will be happy to be contradicted by the release of new working drivers... or that will more probably never happen?
