... then go back to Synaptic and have a look at 'powertop'...and if that doesn't work, then try Google search...

Looks like you have a whole bunch of issues with switching, so I'm going to post you a link(Ihaven't used it, but it says free trial) to O'Reilly books...the one I have and use is "Linux Desktop Pocket Guide" it has a whole section devoted to Laptops(I don't have 1) and many useful commands that can help you get going...use this site at your own risk, I haven't tried it...https://ssl.safaribooksonline.com/trial
