    ProBook 4520s battery life


    Hi,
    is there anybody with Probook 4520s? If yes, can you tell me how long is your battery life? Manufactures says it's 4 hours, but I can't get more than 1:45!!!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    What OS (distribution+version) of Linux are you running? Which desktop manager?

    Well, there should be a power management tool in the System->Administration or Preferences menu. Have you checked that out as for settings?
