Hey, I followed the description at 


and put the radeon_force_sleep in modprobe.conf. With this, this script

 before: 21680 mWh
 after: 21410 mWh
 diff: -270 mWh
 seconds: 1239 sec
 result: -784 mW
 Congratulations, your model seems NOT to be affected.

which is sweet. Please add

+	{
+		/* Reported by David Zeuthen <davidz@redhat.com> */
+		.ident = "IBM ThinkPad T41 (2373-HU6)",
+		.matches = {

to linux-2.6.11-radeon-backlight.patch. Thanks!

Sweet, this is my model too.  I tested it this morning and it is working great.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-06-08 23:32:14 EDT
I'm puzzled. The script say its not affected, why does it need adding ?
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-06-09 02:00:18 EDT
I am not sure what that script does, but testing both with and without this
radeonfb thing is a difference of 5000 to 1000 mWh power consumption in one hour
of sleeping.  It is proven beneficial on this model.
Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2005-06-09 10:38:41 EDT
In response to comment 2: The script was run with radeon_force_sleep=1. Without
that option the power consumption is about 5000 rather than 784. With the
white-list entry I posted we don't need the option :-)
