    Hi! I updated to Lion like a month ago!
    At the beginning the battery life wasnt that bad! probably 2 hours less than with Snow Leopard! (I have a Macbook Pro 2.2 Quad core i7)
    Now the battery like can be compared to a windows laptops... about 3 to 4 hours doing simple stuff! :(
    Does anyone have the same problem? Could someone fix it somehow?

    At least 6:30 on Early 2009 17" 2.66GHz 8GB. Just about the same as with SL. (no display sleep; periods of low activity, but with self-refreshing web page and Mail fetching every 5 min.; ~50% backlight; kybd light auto; BT off; graphics set to 9400M)
