I am using Linux Mint 9 Isadora on a notebook which is on a dual boot setup. One thing I've noticed is that it drains battery so much faster than Windows does.

Another issue that I'm having is that whenever I unplug the notebook from AC source, the system recognize it as critical battery status though the battery is full. Which then prompts it to either go on standby status (power management setting on critical battery).

Here's my power management setting.
On AC Power
Actions
Put computer to sleep when inactive for: Never
When laptop lid is closed: Suspend
Spin down hard disks when possible. (not selected)

Display
Put display to sleep when inactive for: 30 min
Set display brightness to: 100%
Dim display when idle. (not selected)

On Battery Power
Actions
Put computer to sleep when inactive for: 30 min
When laptop lid is closed: Suspend
When battery is critically low: Suspend
Spin down hard disks when possible. (selected)

Display
Put display to sleep when inactive for: 10 min
reduce backlight brightness. (not selected)
Dim display when idle. (selected)

General
Action
When the power button is pressed: Ask me
When the suspend button is pressed: Do nothing

Notification Area
(selected) -> Only display an icon when charging or discharging.
---------------
What are the options available for me to extend my battery life and to solve the issue on critical battery?
