Yeah, it does look like this is the best solution for now. Any hope on

Again, no, there is nothing the kernel can do, it is a broken BIOS you
are dealing with, please push your vendor to provide an updated, fixed,
one.

Dislaimer: IIRC, both points below are from phoronix.

Which should never really be trusted.

Seriously.

At least one vendor has already declared that they see no need to
fix this as it works on Windows.

That's true, and that vendor doesn't care about Linux, so there's
nothing we can do about it.

There is something that can be done: "Fix" the drivers individually to
turn on the powersaving.

And exactly how can that be done? Specifics are needed as no one has
yet been able to determine how to do this.

PS: Is geek a bad word nowadays?

I've always considered it as such:

geek   [geek]
noun Slang.
1. a computer expert or enthusiast (a term of pride as self-reference, but
often considered offensive when used by outsiders.)
2. a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, especially one who is
perceived to be overly intellectual.
3. a carnival performer who performs sensationally morbid or disgusting
acts, as biting off the head of a live chicken.
