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?

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 ...
