Hi Radek,

i have the same observation on 386 based machine - last night i tested
2.6.37 on my HP laptop based server here. Unfortunately, i have also
tweaked bios settings and turned off several unneeded hw features (usb,
pcmci etc) so i don't know whether this wasn t the big part of the
reason, but power consumption went down significantly.
