    Is anyone using office 2011 ?

    My battery is jumping by 10 percent down when I run power point...

    Can I do something for that ?

    I am using a 2010 Macbook pro, with gpu switching.

    Not really, PP uses the CPU like every other application, though it uses it more as it is more complex. If you are near an outlet, use the power adapter.

    Do you just have PowerPoint open without a presentation, or a blank presentation? If that's the case it shouldn't do that...

    On the other hand, if you are loading a complex presentation, there are measures you can take to simplify it.
    1. Import images at as near as possible to the size they are used at
    2. Use PNG images, if possible
    3. For audio files, lower bit rate/sample rate
