    I have recently just set up a Time Capsule. But it seems to be draining the battery on my MacBook Pro. Could anybody help me please?

    Since you are accessing it wirelessly, the Time Capsule has no affect on your battery except for the fact that WiFi must be on. Another thing that could be draining your battery is having Bluetooth on.

    If you want to make sure you are not having any major problems, go to the Application called Activity Monitor and make sure there is not a process eating up CPU.

    Check your Time Machine setting.

    Your Time Machine might be enabled to backup while it's on battery power to your Time Capsule.
