Tuning my notebook

I recently bought a Sony Vaio VGN-N350FE
At my home-office I have a color laser printer HP 2600n, and with my brand new notebook, I cannot print. Windows Vista throws a "Data Execution Prevention" error, and the spool service dies (before this, I never had any troubles - not with Windows XP, not with Ubuntu).
I googled a lot, and I found no solution. It seems to be a compatibility problem between HP drivers and Windows' new version.
This (and other motives) make me decide to install ubuntu feisty in this machine. Everything is fantastic, except the energy management issue. Keyboard function keys do not work, and following some tutorials led to no solution (apparently, I have a 'too' new model).
So in the mean time, if I use Windows, I cannot print, and if I use Linux, battery duration is less than acceptable.
I can assure you, my estimated reader, that this will continue.
