Someone direct me to a link or give suggestions on ways to keep the battery going longer....of course turning down the screen brightness is the first thought.....any suggestions would be good

If you run apps like sibelius and logic and all that sort of stuff it will lower your battery time down.
Say if you just had text edit up, it should last ages!
Also, NEVER keep your computer on all night long!
Also, the less USB stuff you have in, the longer the power will last.
