Today I bought a new battery for one of my old laptop (I installed Haiku).
This laptop is a Sony Vaio FS-215E:
CPU: Intel Celeron M 1.5GHz
1 GB DDR1 Ram
Video: Integrated Intel (atm I’m away and I can’t recall the exact model, however is supported by Haiku: no vesa)
Haiku runs very well, but today, when I inserted the battery (charged while the laptop was turned off), I booted Haiku and I discover a thing that disappointed me a little bit:
When was 14:42 o’clock, the battery was at 100% of charge: I booted Haiku and leaved the laptop turned on without any activity (so idle); I back at 15:18 o’ clock and the battery was drained to 54%! Obviously, by going in the ProcessController app, i select power saving instead of low latency. But the battery, as I’ve said, is draining very quicly; before I had Windows XP, and with the previous battery, years ago, I didn’t encountered this huge battery drain.
For those which runs Haiku on a laptop, I’d like to receive some feedbacks
