How to apply the Linux Kernel 2.6.38+ power issue workaround
1. To force Active-State Power Management to be enabled, you must edit the GRUB2 config file so open a terminal and copy/paste this:
gksu gedit /etc/default/grub
2. Then, locate the line that looks like this:
(it's on line 11 on my computer) and to the end of the line, before the last quote, addpcie_aspm=force (and a space before it), which should make it look like this:GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pcie_aspm=force"
Now double check you've edited the file correctly! Modifying this file incorrectly may cause your computer to stop booting!
3. And finally, update GRUB using the command below:
And restart your computer.
If something goes wrong, reverting the changes is pretty easy: simply open "/etc/default/grub" as root and remove "pcie_aspm=force" from the end of the "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT" line, then run "sudo update-grub
Press Alt + F2 and type:
gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
And comment (add a "#" in front of it) the last line called "options snd-hda-intel power_save=10". Basically, this is how the line should look after editing it:
#options snd-hda-intel power_save=10
save the file.
Open terminal and do:
Code:gksudo gedit /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/intel-audio-powersave
Find this line:
and comment it out by putting a "#" in front of it like this:
Just below this line you make a new line, like this:
So now you will have:
Save the file (File > Save) and exit.
Reboot the computer.
The popping sound will be gone.
NOTE: If you for some reason need to undo the setting, just open the file again and remove the "#" from:
and delete this line:
Save the file.
