    i was thinking about installing vista so i defragged my HD with iDegfrag

    ever since then (yesterday) my battery time in the top right says i have consistently under 2 hours of battery left even thought its at 90%

    ive tried restarting
    letting the battery completely drain

    havent taken it out yet
    even when i put the computer on better performance it will change it by 10 minutes

    the computer is fairly new got it halfway through february and have done 66 cycles with 94% health
    i was getting up to 5 hours...


    update: i quit "ichat manager" or something in activity monitor and my batter went up to 2:50 :S
    shucks any thoughts?

    Yes. There is little need for maintenance on Mac, as OS X does a lot of the stuff for you, in the background.
