Hello, A few months ago I finally upgraded to Lion and the battery life on my MacBook has (like for many others) been drastically reduced. An example - I switched the machine on just over ten minutes ago and it has already dropped from 100% to just 88%. I have only been using Safari to google the problem and have had the Activity Monitor running. I haven't been able to give the problem much attention because of other matters though I have spent whatever time I could searching for answers on Google and the Apple Support Discussion pages. However, although there are a lot of people with the problem there doesn't seem to be much in the way of solutions. And as far as I can tell, the first acknowledgement from Apple of a battery life issue is just with Mountain Lion. I can't contact Apple directly as my AppleCare has expired. Can anybody here help? The MacBook is a Late 2008 13 Inch Aluminium. Cheers.
