Hi All,

Not really being a big laptop person, I am seeing with my work Lappy the battery is good for around 10 minutes from a full charge it drops extremely fast, I am talking 93% to 15% in the space of 10 minutes while not being used! (Outlook open, Teams open, Chrome & possibly Edge open) the thing is you need to plug it in to get any useful work done, I have got on to our IT dept about it ('Well run BatteryReport and get back to us'). Battery report shows the battery falls off a cliff. So are 'modern' laptops really bad at power management or does the OS (11 ver?) run really badly from a power point of view. Back in the day Laptops would last and last (I remember the first laptop I dealt with an Amstrad PPC512 used it on site for four day didn't need to charge it!)

rant over
Glenn
