[Mageia-discuss] Grindingly slow LAN access when running off battery on new laptop

I have just got a Macbook Pro and successfully got it running Mageia.
When I run it off battery however, if I am accessing shares on my local
server, it just takes forever to load up the mounted shares in Dolphin.
As soon as I plug in the power supply it works fine. I've never
experienced anything like this before. It is the same whether I mount
with smb4k or mount.cifs as root.
Anyone have any theories on why this might be happening please?
Also, you know the old spin-down thing with the disk where the disk
stops spinning after a very short time? Is there a way to stop that too
Other than that, it seems to work rather nicely on the Mac even if the
******* glide pad drives me nuts!
