S10e short battery life & memory usage too high

Hi,

I bought my comp almost 1 year ago. Now I am having very high memory usage in Firefox, Safari, & Chrome. Also, my battery only lasts 1.5 hrs. What can I do?

Becky

Hi and welcome,

Keep your system clean , delete temporary data with a duster like cleanprog or ccleaner...

try this  Disable unnessessary progs ... could accelerate (and de-loads some progs...

...on your screenshoot. looks like there are many useless of them at startup... :smileyhappy:

 

more about battery ...in Knowledge Base ...

... battery could be weak to a certain degree after a year...

Re: S10e short battery life & memory usage too high

Thanks for the reply & the help. I have tried some of those suggestions.

 

I also have another issue--I use an external LG monitor & sometimes the connection gets disrupted. I have to switch to the netbook screen, and sometimes hibernate in order to get the external monitor to work again. I have search for info on drivers, etc but any help you can provide is appreciated!

Hi there.. check your settings in Lenovo Energymanagement... 

You found my settings as an example in the Ideapad S-Series Knowledge Base ...
