    I have a revA air. I thought when close the book, it will only consume very little power. Today when i come back from work and open it. the battery drop from 73%->63% in 10 hours. is this normal?
    thanks

    I wouldn't say it was totally abnormal. 10% in 10 hours on standby?

    Not sure, I wouldn't call that "quick" since it's 1% per hour.

    I would say that it loses battery life significantly faster then other laptops I have owned.

    My battery is doing great even after a year and more than 200 cycles (something between 2.5 to 3 hs), but it was always a hungry machine while asleep.
