battery lasts for lesser time
I have HP Laptop...
Earlier when I had Windows Vista, the battery charge held up for abt 2.5 hours..
But few months back when I replaced Vista with ubuntu, I have been getting considerably less battery power. Although this hasn't been a big bother as I do not travel a lot, but still I would like an explanation.
After full charging it shows 1hr 45 minutes. But within 5 minutes its gone to 1 hr 24 minutes remaining.
When power's gone, I think the actual battery power lasts for about 45 minutes.
1) I run my laptop normally in stretches of 3-4 days. Is it having adverse effects on my battery?
2) The power management options haven't helped me much.
