Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

The battery of the notebook computer exhausts very quickly and does not last up to the battery life (length of time for battery operation) as described in the catalog.

To keep the battery life longer, perform the following steps:

1. Save the consumption of the power for hard drive.
- When user does not operate some applications, set the computer in system suspend mode or system hibernation (Save To Disk).
- Execute the Disk Defragmenter. It will reorganize data on a file system and partition, and improve the speed to access to the hard drive.
- Disable the settings of the application that requires access to the hard disk drive such as Auto Saving or Spelling check.
- Add main memory. The number of swapping decreases and the access to the hard disk drive also decreases.

2. Turn off the device when not in use.
- Set the computer to video standby to save the consumption of power from the LCD when it is not in use.
