OK, just to put my mind to rest, can Apple ACTUALLY release an update that will fix the battery issues that alot of people, myself included? Is it a software problem, or just something one will have to get used to in Lion, and therefore have to revert to SL, which for me, would be a very long and annoying process.

Any answers would be appreciated.

if it's a software issue then it can be fixed.

if the issue didn't exist in SL but does in Lion it's a software issue, if lion is designed to be more power hungry - I'm not sure they'll be able to fix that - it's like windows xp & vista in a way

All your slow GPU's are heating up and decreasing the battery life. I guess they could have a superfluous graphics kill switch for battery life increase.
