With wi-fi wireless and bluetooth enable, my iBook's battery can only last for 4.5 hours. So, after 3 hours of use, the battery remains only about 25%.

How long does your iBook's battery last?

I see about 4 hours with a charge on my iBook.

I have Bluetooth turned off, and when I'm not using Wifi I turn that off, too. In that scenario, I get about 4.5 hours.

the bluetooth and wi fi kill the battery, try reducing the display brightness i bit, and preform full charge and discharge cycles, it will increase battery life.

Fully charged with full brightness, surfing web and IM chatting, then 4 hours or so. With brightness turned down, at least 5 hours. Both with Airport on.

If I'm playing something like WoW, then around 2.5 hours on full brightness.
