x300 + CPU whine + Linux + how to disable C4 state

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I also have this annoying CPU whine occurance when my CPU changes to C4.

As I have Linux running on my x300 (Ubuntu 8.10) deactivating Power-Management in bios is not an option because then I cannot adjust the display-brightness with the function-buttons anymore. 

Is it possible to deactivate C4 with a shell script? 

 

EDIT/ I had to reinstall gnome-power-manager after deactivating power-mgmt in bios, adjusting brightness now works again. 

Yet, my question still remains. 

 

Thanks in advance
