|I'm just curious to know what kind of battery life everyone is getting? I seem to be maxing out at around 2 hours, which is way under the 5 hours the product literature boasts. Obviously their figures are for new units, and are probably inflated and/or represent ideal conditions (and I admit that I have been running a lot of drive- and processor-intensive apps), but I don't know if this is about average or if maybe I would be better off replacing the battery. According to the battery meter (which I'm not sure how much to trust) I lose about 20% of battery charge within the first few minutes, which may be indicative that this battery just isn't holding a full charge.|
Disabling the serial and LPT ports seems to have extended life a bit, but I'd also be interested in any other tips (beyond PM settings) for getting the most out of the battery.
