    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.

    This pretty much the answer I got on the Apple Discussion forms. :(

    Nearly 200 people but no advice!!!

    Can't anyone give me guidance?
