[xubuntu] Battery Life

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I just installed Xubuntu 13.04 on my netbook (Acer Aspire One D270-1395 w/2GB DDR3). So far I seem to be getting about 2.5 hours of battery life on a single full charge. Does anyone know if this normal for a netbook running Xubuntu? If not, is there anything I can do to get a little more time out of a charge? I'm not sure how long a charge would have lasted under Windows 7 Starter, which came preinstalled, since I promptly replaced it with Xubuntu upon receipt. Thanks in advance. (Hardware)
