    So I have a 2011 MBP and the battery is draining so quickly! It was at 100% when I first got on it and 5 minutes later it dropped 6%! I only get about an hour or less of charge before it dies. Is there some settings I can change to conserve the battery?

    No settings. You need a new battery. Make sure you purchase a genuine Apple battery; stay away from knock off batteries that are inexpensive.
