Re: Poor power management unviable on laptop
Powermanagment still is not as good in linux as it is in windows. Battery life is therefore not as good.
I believe this is in part to do with some of the linux drivers not completely supporting all the power saving abilities of the hardware.
There are things that can be done to improve battery life.
Some ideas in these pages
