I really love my Air but it does not get anywhere nears its advertised 7 hour battery life. Part of this is due to my having the brightness cranked but the other is I got a ton of apps running in the background. I keep most of the dock apps under control and close them when not in use but I have 7-10 other apps that run in the background (most in the menu bar). I love these apps and they make my mac even better but it would be nice to hit a toggle and have the non-essentials close. Then when I dock back up re-toggle it so those ones open up again. Does such an app exist? I am guessing this could be done with applescript but I don't have the experience... Thanks!
