    Did 10.6.6 update negatively affect battery life? My battery health is 99% and it's calibrated but I find the battery life is alot lower in comparison to last year when I could get 8-9 hours.

    ( i also tested it with nothing running )

    Even with "nothing running", did you check to see if background processes or widgets are running? Do you have the same screen brightness as before? Bluetooth? WiFi? There are many things, not just primary apps running, that affect battery life.

    I see no change on mine before and after the update.

    Full charge with nothing on still shows over 9 hours on the clock. I calibrate every month, give or take a week.

    I have noticed this issue as well. I thought I was going crazy.
