To be clear, Windows 7 is faster on my XPS than XP was (same number of apps installed as my old XP installation). Yet is anyone else also experiencing higher average CPU usage and shorter battery lives? Life seriously goes down to 1:30, was 2:00 a few weeks under XP)
Any thing I can do about either? Figured Windows power plans won't work anyway, since I constantly use the laptop when unplugged.
