Lately I've been using Linux mint on my HP laptop and have noticed a drastic decrease in battery life in comparison to my windows partition. It's around a loss of 3 hours, and I have installed power managers, dimmed screened, disabled wi-fi when not in use. Does any one else have any recommendations?
