When I installed, I chose to do the install with the acpi=off option and
that is the boot options after install completed as well. I have not
tried with apm=off as well though, so that is something I shall try
tonight when I am back home.

You are correct that the Centrino is too new for linux to have caught up
with it yet. I hope to be able to test patches out for the kernel and
have offered to do so on the LKML. I will keep the list posted in case
anyone else gets an X31 and would want to run linux on it. :)

What does people think of the 2.5 kernels then? Anyone reckon trying the
latest 2.5 would perhaps fix some of the problems?
