    Clocked on various ocassions, from pressing on button (laptop is off and not restarting from hibernation or suspension), to laptop going into hibernation at 2% critical battery level, using the maximum energy saving mode.

    This is with wifi on and surfing the web.

    Hdd shuts off after 1 min, display brightness at minimum.

    Battery was manufactured at least 4 months ago and is the 9 cell official Toshiba unit supplied with the laptop.

    Laptop has 2gb memory and the Core 2 Duo T5750 processor, running Vista basic.

    Just want to add that this means the laptop is using approx 18 watts, which seems to be a very reasonable number, given that just the processor has a tdp of 35 watts. These Core 2 Duos with speed stepping really reduce their energy consumption.

    By the way, display is 1280x800, and the wireless adapter is the realtek rtl8781lb, not the intel one.

    Do you have some question?
    How to understand your thread?

    If you can work so long with battery power supply only, that is great. Almost 4 hours.
    My Satellite A300 runs about 3 hours.

    I donít know how to understand your question and/or thread but to work with battery for 3 hours and 45 minutes is really great.

    My Satellite L300 runs 3 hours with battery.
