There are two distributions which I are heavily used on laptops (also in
general, but regardless...): SuSE and Ubuntu. I think it has a lot to do
with Wi-Fi support, which of course is prevalent among mobile computers.
Have you tried the Ubuntu Live CD? This will at least give you an indica-
tion of whether a bug report is suitable and if so, does it lie somewhere
among SuSE or can it be associated with the Linux kernel? I once looked at
a commit digest of the kernel and it seemed as if there were many contor-
butions from SuSE developers. Maybe you can help resolve that issue that
has been raised by so many, as your findings suggest.
