My laptop felt like it was about to burst into flames after I ran
2.6.35 on it for a while. It actually got too hot to place on my legs.
Powertop showed it running over a 1000 wakeups a second while completely idle.

Chuck Ebbert pointed me at this diff..

which brings it back down to a much more respectable 80 wakeups a second.

Is this lined up for ?
