comment System has gotten very slow of late. How to unearth the problem?
just out of curiosity, how are you scp-ing the files? Are you calling scp for each one, or are you copying a bunch of them using one scp call ( i.e. scp* ./ ) ? That may affect your performance as well. And why scp and not a secure rsync? (not trying to be nit-picky - just trying to completely assess what you're trying to do).
comment How to charge the battery till 60-80% only?
I have found that what usually kills off my battery life is working plugged in regularly. Just as a suggestion, I would try and run on battery for at least an hour or two every time you use your laptop. I found that doing this actually does help the lifetime of the battery.
