    I get an hour and a half on mine if I'm lucky. That was measured on suse9.3 with KDE running with all its bells and whistles. I wonder how long I would get with my nice trim gentoo+fluxbox setup...

    I get about an hour but this is an old battery so I don't know what it would be like with a new battery I'm assuming two plus because I'm running gentoo with fluxbox and don't do any heavy processing jobs or video which eat battery I also don't have cpu scaling or video saving options on. I might get a new battery though because its annoying having the battery die in the middle of doing something.

    bye the way I have an IBM thinkpad T22
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
