comment Ubuntu 13.10 on Thinkpad slows down dramatically when power adapter is plugged in
I don't think this is it -- in my original question, I saw clear reproducible slowdown when the laptop was plugged in (regardless of its level of charge). I think your answer is implying that the issue occurs when the laptop is low on battery or missing a battery.

comment How do I change my PYTHONPATH to make 3,2 my default Python instead of 2.7.2?
For support libraries and tools (like pyenv, fabric), they expect /usr/bin/env python to be what you want. So manually typing python3 isn't the solution.

Hmm, so I think we're probably in different situations - my ethernet light is not on, I don't get the dystyping problem, I don't see kworker or watchdog spiking, and I never experience any freezes or get to the point of unusability. I'll do a cold reboot anyway, and will update it if helps. Either way, I bet your description here will help some others, though, definitely a +1.

comment Ubuntu 13.10 on Thinkpad slows down dramatically when power adapter is plugged in
Hmm, I just spent some time with all this - watching cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor showed me ondemand at all times, whether or not I was plugged in. I installed indicator-cpufreq and changed it back and forth from ondemand to performance and observed the plugged and unplugged states in both -- no change in behavior. I still observed the slowdown while plugged in under either CPU profile. Any other ideas?

comment How can I downgrade to an older version of Nautilus?
BE CAREFUL. This made me unable to log in to my Unity session from then onwards, I had to purge the packages to get back in. The PPA for Cinnamon doesn't guarantee stability alongside Unity.

comment Problem with nvidia drivers installation
How does one do this from the command line? I'm in a state where I have no Unity and no chrome on windows, just a barebones Gnome environment (fortunately my global keyboard shortcuts to open terminals work).
