This is something I was wondering about yesterday, while noticing that my battery is lasting less and less lately.

It seems that my HP Pavilion is really popular:D!


So, here are certain things to help your laptop's battery last a bit longer. On the short list, you have computer components that consume a lot of power:

* The hard drive

* The CD/DVD drive

* The floppy drive (if you have one)

* The modem

* The network interface

* The display

Each of the above devices consumes power when you use it. Obviously, by not using those devices or by rationing their use, you can save a modicum of power.

For example, by setting a lower resolution and fewer colors on the display, you cause the computer to use less video resources (though this technique saves only a minor amount of power). For more savings, consider not using the CD/DVD drive, which requires real power to keep it spinning (such as when you're watching a DVD movie).

But you can really take control by setting various timeouts in the Power Options Properties dialog box, Power Schemes tab, as you can see in Figure 1. Here, you can disable or timeout certain laptop features and help extend battery life in a dramatic way.
