How does your battery do in general (waking)? I assume mine has gotten somewhat worse since my battery has >100 cycles on it now, and I haven't tested it anytime recently, but....I'm also sure it isn't that bad.crazzyeddie said:Mine takes about 3-5% per hour under sleep (15" Titanium Powerbook).
Mine was originally around 6 hours, however, I think I was 10 or so when I got that computer and wasn't too aware of how to correctly drain and recharge the battery. I took extremely good care of the laptop, just not that battery. I also hardly ever actually used the battery for a full good life, so that didn't help. Right now, I'm borrowing my grandma's G3 900Mhz 14" and it only gets around 3.5 hours. She never drained it or charged/used it right either though. My G4 should be here any day now, and I plan to take extremely good care of it's battery.MacHarne said:The iBook sleep lifes are phenominal. My 800 G3 would get almost three weeks in sleep (though those were rare stretches of time). The current PB I'm using seems to lose about 2-3% in an 8 hour span.
ITASOR, only 3.5 hours? My old 800 G3 iBook pulled 6 hours of life on a battery charge only a few weeks before I sold it earlier this month. I was doing some basic Photoshop work and had Airport running the entire time. Even from the beginning, I had been impressed with that 14" iBook's performance. The battery life is something I'll miss.
