Yoper has a few laptop-specific issues that are being addressed in the next release.
1) PCMCIA is not included by default (but it is in the development release, so it will be in the next stable release). In the meantime you will want to do apt-get install pcmcia-cs if you have a PCMCIA slot.
2) For some reason, the battery and ac power management modules aren't loaded by default. This is certainly a problem with laptops! The solution is to
modprobe battery modprobe ac
3) Yoper uses ACPI rather than APM by default. Some laptops, especially older ones like mine, don't work well with ACPI. If you find that when you hit the suspend key on your keyboard the machine doesn't enter suspend mode, or if you tell it to shut down and it kills all processes and just sits there, you will need to modprobe apm. As above, you will want to add it to a startup script.
