My G4 battery doesn't seem to last that long. I have to keep the adapter in the whole time, because if I take the plug out, then if I download stuff, play games, go online, the battery goes out in maybe about 3-4 hours.. quite annoying?

Lets see. Turn down the display and sound. That should make it last a while.

Do you run the battery all the way down once in a while?

it's apparently not good to run your battery all the way down very often...also, 3-4 hrs is normal....and actually very good battery life for a laptop. I wouldn't worry about it...turn your screen brightness down...and if you must, your volume down...and you'll get more out of it.....but like I said....3-4 hours is pretty normal when you're doing a lot of stuff.
