I just bought an Asus G75 and the battery is lasting less than 2 hours, even when doing nothing. I read somewhere that energy saving is not efficient on linux, at least by default. Is there something I can do to improve this ? Thanks

what is the battery backup of windows? Please post output of lspci | grep VGA – Web-E Jun 27 '12 at 11:36

When on battery, I set Jupiter ('') to 'Power saving'. This significantly increases your autonomy.
