Hi,
I usually don't run my laptop on battery. However, I know for sure this problem didn't exist before the upgrade to Windows 7.

The battery loses charge at the rate of about 5% every 10 min.
Little time after the meter reads ~ 70% the laptop goes into automatic hibernation (first seemed to be a power options issue). But when I do "system resume" after plugging in the battery the meter shows about 10% and charging.

I have already tried calibration. (actually that's what the laptop is doing by itself).

Thanks,

Neo

Will Window 7 is more graphic intensive and consume more power than your old XP?
