Now that I got me a laptop to work from I wanted to get the most out of the battery life. Well after tweaking and tuning the laptop I'm at a low of 7-8 watts of draw on the battery and up to 4 hours of battery life. But now working it ranges about 10-12 watts and about 3 hours of battery life. Then I thought my desktop is no different if the inverter is running so I tune it as well but I can see the watt draw because its not a laptop. But I see different device have fell asleep and no longer reporting information on my Conky panel. I even got over zealous enough and put my USB keyboard/mouse transmitter on it and just about lock myself out of the computer because of the USB being put to sleep.:banghead: :lmao2::lmao:. What I'm playing with...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install powertop
Then just run powertop as a superuser.
sudo powertop

I get 4 hours out of mine with all my crap running...raise your standards! Aim for 6 hours lol. I just looked and mine is at 21 watts so with you being half that you should be at 8 hours.. Maybe your battery is smaller. Eh let me look mine up. Ok its 8-cell 5400 mAH.

I was watching the wattage some more and noticed mine drops down to 8 watts as well. So you're gonna have to do better than that lol.
