Battery life and charge-cycle. Background light life-cycle.

1.Prolonging battery life-cycle by the "do not charge when battery charge is above nn% which by default is 96%. How about setting it manually to much smaller value. 50%-60%. Would that prolong batterly life-cycle? (When I dont want to charge the battery)

2. All parameters set to small values for using as little energy as possible for extending the time when nly battery power is available: The temperature is still (far too) high underneath where (center-center) the ventilation gaps are. How come? The only process take CPU-power is logmon.exe from IBM/Lenovo...

3. Logmon.exe is alway running at about 15% CPU... How can I change that?

4 Is the screen background light gas-filled? If so, will the life-cycle shorten if it turns on/off to frequently? (Light timeout value to low)

Thank you IBM/Lenovo for this site.

Re: Battery life and charge-cycle. Background light life-cycle.

1)  See and follow the hints and tips of the Battery University

2) Look at the Z60m part list or into the HMM in order to detect which parts/components are sitting there, this will give you some hint what parts might get heated up a lot near the thermal device.

3) AFAIK logmon.exe is part of or belongs to ThinkVantage rescues & recovery. - If it runs as a service on your OS, then you can disable that service or maybe you can just change the scheduling times for that monitor service inside r & r. A look into the r & r manual, which can be found on Lenovo's website, might can tell you more about this.

4) Look for yourself here, CCFL backlights for notebooks have usually a life time of 15.000 till 30.000 hours. Yes in practise the life-time will shorten, but this is common for all electronic devices over time.
