Hello everyone. First time on the forums and I hope someone can help me out with this so here it goes...
I'm using a T500 which is almost brand new and I've noticed that my battery is draining too quickly. I know this because I have owned other Thinkpads before (T60, T61p, R61, etc.) and this is the worst on battery life. I have a 9-cell battery in currently with 80.10Wh at full capacity and I don't get more than 2.5 hours out of one full charge. I had this same 9-cell battery in my older T60 and I was easily able to pull 6 hours of battery life. I have my power manager set to 'Optimized' and dimmed the screen almost all the way. What could I be missing here? I'm running Windows 7 Pro if it makes any difference.
Thanks for any of your inputs.
