The performance of my battery on Ubuntu/WinXp is worse when compared to OSX. It has been a year since I decided to triple boot my macbook. My battery performance has degraded since that time. Does that have something to do with triple booting. Has anyone else faced this issue.

Your responses will be highly appreciated.

Cheers,

Naren

I have the same computer as you. I always use the battery until the computer goes to sleep automatically. I don't use bluetooth and I have both CPU's on power save mode. Screen brightness I turn down to 50%. It gives me 2 hours.
