Am I the only one that things that the Hardware and Laptops forums should be separated.
There is some overlay, but I think there is far more that is unique between the two.

i want to disable hardware overlay and i'm on my micromax a110 stock ics rom 4.0.4. but the disable hardware overlay option is missing under developer options. i want to use software called screencast thats why i need to enable this option. :(
I have been looking around at forums and so on, and I know for a fact I am not the only one, and I actually have a temporary solution to my problem. When i've done a full hard reboot of my laptop (example: Sudo reboot) My wi-fi does not work, because it is disabled by hardware switch, or hard switch. Whatever it's called!
This isn't really an Ubuntu question, more of a general laptop/hardware question, but these forums have lot's of smart brains so I thought I'd try and see if anyone can help.
My laptop (Dell XPS M1330) will suddenly shut down...completely and instantly turn off when it's not plugged in. Sometimes this happens after 5 minutes of being unplugged, sometimes it's an hour after being unplugged.
I searched through the forums and didn't find the same problem I'm having. I have a Canon LIDE 110 scanner. It scans just fine on my laptop, an Asus UX301, but on my homebuilt machine, I experience the same errors you read about across these forums. It will only scan one page at a time, if at all in Simple Scan, and gscan2pdf frequently throws errors when using it.
I'm currently on HP G32 running fedora 16. I haven't had a very satisfactory battery performance with fedora (I've only been using fedora) with all of my past hardware. E.g., my acer netbook runs around 4 hours on windows 7, but only around 2 hours on fedora.
Some threads are about supported hardware for some *ix box like here or using *ix for some old-box like here -- but I feel it like slavery or inferior-purpose, they do not solve the original problem -- they move the problem onwards. I think hardware and software are and will be very broken unless integrated closely together.
