let me start with the technical details of my laptop:
Now let me explain the situation.
The apps that are open are Google Chrome ( with 5 tot 15 tabs most of the time), Outlook, Dropbox and one metro apps (weather or the app store).
As you can read, no heavy usage. The CPU is stable between 5% tot 20% and the RAM is at 40% to 70%.
Feel free to ask some technical questions, I should be able to answer them as I'm a bachelor student in IT.
Thanks for your help in this matter. Feel free to add your own experiences or personal tips.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If I could only be able to install the Lenovo Settings app... I get "This app isn't available for your PC" error message in the Windows Store on Windows 8.
I opened the link from here : http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/3078e868-a336-4a13-af40-8f37982cf591
Searching for "Lenovo Settings" in the Windows Store on my pc doesn't even show any relevant results.
EDIT: and I found the answer why I can't install this metro app:http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-Tablet-ThinkPad-Laptops/quot-Lenovo-Settings-quot-on-x230t-and-...

It *has* Windows 8 installed on it, it came with Windows 7. So yes, I did mention it runs Windows 8
(You should admit it's a weird thing that the Lenovo settings app would only work on laptops that were shipped with Windows 8, but not upgraded to Windows 8?)

You mentoined at your system specs that it si Win8 x64
I admit it, but its not due to Lenovo, it is in fact because of Microsoft. 100%
In any case, stay tuned.

So regarding my issue: it is considered normal that my battery only lasts 4 hours with normal use and only 2 hours with heavy usage (heavy browsing, music playing, FTP constantly transferring, multiple other Windows open...)?
