    Hi

    Something doesnt seem right
    screen brightness at 50%, keylights off, no cd in the drive, NO usb devices connected, no runaway proccesses, and only a ethernet wire plugged in. How is that 14W?
    even with brightness at 20% it is using 7.4 watts

    Seriously? Another battery thread? Why not use the one you already started a few days ago and read the posts that were given.

    I swear, you put Hare Krishna in your sig, but you seem to be more focused on your battery than on your Godhead.

    Let's see, you have a ton of useless crap open(just look at that menu bar) and you're paging out like mad.

    You're lacking RAM and are using too much stuff at once to get good battery life. Simple as that.

    Is that Skype I see in your menu bar? There might be your answer.

    Yeah, Skype will fire up your discrete graphics chip instead of using the integrated one - that will use more power.
