Well, flashing the BIOS did the trick for the powersaving. It works well now.

btw: for those Linux-only users who need to flash the bios, this may come 
handy :

For those without a floppy disk drive, you can make your own bootable CD and 
add some files to that :

$mount ubcd.iso tmp/ -o loop
$cp -R tmp/* bootdisk/
$cp -R filedir bootdisk/
$cd bootdisk/
$mkisofs -N -J -D -V "UBCD" -o /home/me/flashcd.iso -b boot/loader.bin 
-no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 .

I saw some messages about long file names, but at least it booted and worked 
for me. I simply ignored the messages as I have no idea how to solve it.
