Tips to extend battery life for laptops and notebooks
I own an Asus Eee PC 1015 PEM. I've decided to fully shift to Ubuntu, I've been using it on other systems since the 5th release, so I'm very well familiarized with Ubuntu.
Even though I'm very happy with the OS, I've been noticing 2 things: One is that my battery life is almost only half of what I got with Windows, the second is that most of the time the core temperature goes around 55º C.
I've installed jupiter, and added the "quiet splash pcie_aspm=force", I have also installed the scripts to slow down disk speeds when running on battery, and still I can't get more than 6 hours of battery life, while on Windows I used to get from 9 to 10 ours.
I want to know if there are is anything else that I can do to make my battery last longer and make my computer temperature come a little lower?
