Specifications

Battery should last 5 hours according to the reseller, but it does not last as long in Linux for me.

Kernel

You can find the patch needed for suspend-to-ram+S-ATA there: http://rtr.ca/dell_i9300/kernel/kernel-2.6.13/04_libata_suspend.patch

RTC has apparently some problems, I have no idea yet why:

select() to /dev/rtc to wait for clock tick timed out


Graphic Card

See this HowTo.

ACPI

Sound

For 'optimal' sound settings, I prefer the following (in alsamixer):

PCM: Unmuted, 74 (try around, 74 sounds good for me, no hissing)

Headphone: Unmuted and your volume of choice

Suspend-To-Ram

For suspend-to-ram the best explanation you can find right in your kernel tree: /usr/src/linux/Documentation/power/video.txt

On this Notebook the video does not come back automatically, so we need to use vbetool as described in workaround 6. Suspending/resuming in console works with that.

To get your S-ATA working after resume you need a kernel patch: http://rtr.ca/dell_i9300/kernel/kernel-2.6.13/04_libata_suspend.patch

After Resume the X-Server does not work. You can currently only use it in text-mode.
