I have an X201 with i5 CPU. I just got a brand new 4-cell battery. Like the last one I got, it only lasts for an hour or so. I am using the "Balanced" power setting in Control Panel/Power Options. Yet I am also noticing that the machine runs hot when not plugged in. When I originally got this machine, the 4-cell battery was good for at least 2 hours.
Is is possible that there is some problem with power management, like maybe some sensor that isn't working properly?
Thanks for any suggestions!

Do you know what version of Power Manager your running? What OS you have? I would suggest you update to latest version. If you could post back and with any other questions I will be more then happy to help you.
