My notebook is a Compaq Pressario CQ71. The battery life is like 1:45 h. When Win Vista was installed on it, it was like 3 h. Now I like Linux more, but this distribution (ubuntu 12.04) is consumes too much power. So, what linux distribution is less power hungry than ubuntu 12.04?
Besides being less power hungry the Linux should be have the same graphic effect option (compiz, cairo dock, ...) like ubuntu 12.04.
Thanks in advance.
