    Using 1 tick in brightness, shutting off bluetooth and wifi, and not do anything intensive.

    Other than that, you might as well keep your laptop turned off.

    There are many factors that impact your battery life. See the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link for details, including tips on how to maximize your battery life.

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    Apart from lowering your screen's brightness and turning off wi-fi and bluetooth, there are no "settings" per se that will help battery life. This isn't a windows laptop, OS X takes care of that in the background for you.
