Has this issue been dealt with in the latest Kernel 3.2?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave these specific reasons:
- "Bug reports and problems with the development version of Ubuntu should be reported on Launchpad so that developers can see, track and fix these issues." – Braiam, Jorge Castro, Jobin
- "This describes a problem that can't be reproduced that seemingly went away on its own or was only relevant to a very specific period of time. It's off-topic as it's unlikely to help future readers." – Eric Carvalho, waltinator
Am guessing you are talking about laptops, video cards and specially Intel ones. There is an improvement mentioned in sites like Phoronix and OMGUbuntu but for what I have tested, is not yet activated. It should be by the end of 12.04 since the patches and changes are going to be applied to the 3.2 kernel anyway, which is the default for 12.04 now.
Why I suggest is to wait for the final release since this is an Alpha and an Alpha 1 for that matter and since our problem is very bad (power sucked out quickly and temperatures really bad) it is better to test it with something stable than something not quite finished yet.
No, it isn't/won't be fixed in 3.2. See http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTAyMjk
