Greetings from a new member !!!

2008-11-25, 8:51 AM

Hello to everyone on the board.

 

I'm a new owner of a T400 and have been following the board before purchase and infact used it as an important tool for the judgement process. All of this are completely meant as high praise and thank you all for helping though indirectly.

 

Now some guidance would be welcome as to the services and processes that're essential to the system. One step further is how to get optimal battery usage out of this system without stopping too much and what ?. System specs are given below and I'm an engineering student who desperately needs all the computing power I can get out of this.

 

Please correct or guide me as I'm completely new to the forum process and only lived so far with company supplied and maintained hardware.

Frustrating questions from me like " so how do I actually do that " are sure to follow.  Thanks for reading

Hello Genel,

 

Congratulations for your new T400 !

 

My personal suggestion to you - please make Rescue and Recovery CD's to save your "fresh and perfectly working" system enivronment for future. I am using ThinkPad for some years and that kind of system copy could be helpful in your future.

 

Regards,

 

Janek

Hello Janek,

 

thanks for the message and the suggestion .   I will do the R&R  ASAP.

Apart from that any ideas as to which services I need to stop or what I need to uninstall to get more out of the battery.

I have a 6-cell and I don't seem to get more than 3 hours with Intel graphics switched on. (Vista Business 64)
