    Here's the screenshot and it is really weird for my air 11' to show a pathetic 5:30 on a 100% charge...what's eating my battery...i have arranged this screenshot based on CPU activity monitor...

    It says windowserver? I am puzzled how...?

    It's an ESTIMATE and doesn't have anything to go on at 100%

    try and force quit windowserver and see what happens. Also, downloading torrent will most likely eat the battery for a bit and the estimated battery life time will raise up once your download is finished.

    I only care about the estimate when the icon becomes red. How much does it last IRL? Ignore the 5:30 estimate, just use it until the icon becomes red and measure how long it lasted.

    A Google search or a search on MR would have told you windowsserver is the process that draws everything on the screen, so it's not surprising your system locked up after you killed it.
