    Hi, i've switched from Chrome to FF a few months ago because of the battery usage.

    Now i have the same problem with Firefox, the medium battery usage in resource manager app is 38!

    I've already disabled CPU acceleration

    Any suggestion?

    I don't know exactly about what hardware and system software you are talking,
    but if it concerns a MacBook running Mavericks, I can tell you that
    when you close the lid and the MB really sleeps,
    no software is running any more.

    But the mouse still consumes power and a UTP adapter still does.

    My experience with a MacBook Pro is that it keeps on running for some 6-7 hours, what ever I do.
    With the lid closed it can sleep for 30 days if all wires are disconnected.
    ;JOOP!

    The problem is not the lid closed tough, but when the pc is running
