I think I now have the answer to my question. Why does my battery run down so fast when using Windows in Parallels?
Today, I popped into an Apple Store and one of the guys there said that probably the reason is that I am effectively supplying two computers from one battery - two lots of OS's and two lots of hard disk. That's why when I start Windows I hear the already running HD make the startup growl I get when I start up Mac OS and why the bottom gets hot due to the processors running two OS's.

Any other observations?
