Hey guys. First time here. I bought the Acer Aspire One a month ago and it's been great thus far. My only complaint regards the mediocre battery life. I know it's a 3-cell, but come on, 2 hours? I know HTT eats up a good deal more battery than while not providing too much benefit for web-browsing, reading e-books, and writing docs (not all at the same time, mind you).
I want to turn off HTT, but Acer thoroughly locked their BIOS. I've heard of people disabling HTT in kernel, but that was with the P4 and not an Atom. Can anyone explain whether or not I'd see a noticeable increase in battery life if HTT were disabled? How do I do it in kernel?
