Too little, too late.

Too little, too late.

And after all the time it took them to get a working F7 driver out, AMD/ATI still delivers something that chows down on my battery like a man fresh off a hunger strike. Literally doubled the wakeups as measured by powertop, even at the best of times. I couldn’t get a 14.1? T60p without ATI when I ordered, which leaves me with the vesa driver. On the other hand, I’ve been using that for several months now with absolute stability and a working suspend to RAM.

In good news, though, the temperatures here just dropped almost 15 F in 30 minutes as a line of thunderstorms rolled through.
