I am wondering if I upgrade to ubuntu 8.10 and had installed a driver that I made and installed in 8.04 will it still work in 8.10?

Has this happened to anyone else? I have my laptop dual booted(via wubi) and my ubuntu side seems to sip power as apposed to the vista side that gulps it. is this normal?

What kind of driver are you talking about?

My initial thought is you'd have to recompile it against a newer kernel and libraries

Not sure what to tell you about the power consumption. Maybe how the linux kernel deals with speedstep or powernow?
