    Just thought I'd post that I finally tracked how long my Macbook's battery lasts-

    My settings were that neither the computer nor the display went to sleep, and I turned off the automatic display dimming.

    Also, I had the screen on its highest brightness and wireless on.

    The results: 3 hours and 15 minutes (exactly) before the computer put itself to sleep.

    Not bad, I'd say!

    Sweet, when I have wireless turned on, screen dimmed to 3 bars and 2 windows open in Safari, I get 5 hours.

    If I add MSN, I get around 4 hrs 15 minutes...:D
