eeePC model: 1101HA
Aurora version: Standard 3.0
I have a 1002HA and I have installed eeebuntu standard 3.0, very nice! most of things working out of the box, even wireless! I am experiencing some problems with kernel 2.6.29-1 about
* power management -> 'Reduced Performance' and 'Power Saver' make the monitor flashing and system crashes. I saw here http://www.statux.org/wiki/index.php?ti ... rsave_mode (they just report crashing in Power Save, not Reduced Performance) I understand what to do but I would like a clarification, what does 'scaling' mean in this context? If I prevent it from scaling I will not save power, right?
* rotate monitor -> the monitor starts flashing and gets useless, I have switch off and on the monitor by Fn+F7.
Because of these issues I am using now kernel 2.6.28-12-netbook-eeepc, what are the main differences between those two kernels? Is there a place where I can learn about improvements in kernel releases?

Just to confirm: I've been having the same issue on a 901. (Picture attached for the benefit of anyone else who has the same issue.) I've been applying a few of the tweaks mentioned around here to try to improve its stability, but the point when the above stopped happening to me was on application of the tweak suggested at that link: switching BUS_MODE from "STANDARD" to "SHE" ("Super Hybrid Engine").
File comment: Crash when selecting "Power Saver" on Eee 901 under BUS_MODE="STANDARD"

I believe "scaling" refers to changing the speed (and hence power consumption) of the CPU. If scaling is prevented I don't think that power will be saved. However, I assume that "SHE" is just a different means of implementing scaling. That said, I haven't yet confirmed that the different power schemes actually do anything under SHE; I've only confirmed that they no longer crash. This post suggests using geekbench to verify this (which I haven't tried).
