  1. Does it seem like your laptop’s battery charge runs out sooner than it should? Well, it seems like they always do to me. Assuming that the laptop battery isn’t defective, there are a number of power settings that you can tweak in order to make a charge last as long as possible. The key is determining which settings to tweak in order to gain the most benefit without hampering your ability to use your laptop effectively. Windows includes a fantastic hidden tool that can help you decide which power settings you can safely tweak and which ones to leave as they are. This tool creates what’s known as a “Power Efficiency Report”, and here’s how to use it: If your laptop is running Windows 7 1 – Click the Start orb. 2 – Type cmd into the Search box. 3 – Find cmd.exe in the list of search results, then right-click on it and click Run as Administrator. 4 – Type (or copy and paste) the following at the command prompt: powercfg -energy -output \Energy_Report.html Then press Enter After about 60 seconds the report will be ready to view. The steps below explain how to view it… 5 – Press the Windows+E key combination to open Windows Explorer. 6 – Navigate to the root folder of the C: drive and double-click the Energy_Report.html file. 7 – Read the Analysis/Errors section (look for the text with the colored background) to see which power settings can be changed in order to make your laptop run more efficiently. If your laptop is running Windows 8/8.1 1 – While on the Start Screen, press the Windows+S key combination to open a Search box. 2 – Type cmd into the Search box. 3 – Find Command Prompt in the list of search results, then right-click on it and click Run as Administrator. 4 – Type (or copy and paste) the following at the command prompt: powercfg -energy -output \Energy_Report.html Then press Enter. After about 60 seconds the report will be ready to view. The steps below explain how to view it… 5 – Press the Windows+E key combination to open File Explorer. 6 – Navigate to the root folder of the C: drive and double-click the Energy_Report.html file. 7 – Read the Analysis/Errors section (look for the text with the colored background) to see which power settings can be changed in order to make your laptop run more efficiently. Bonus Tips: It is suggested that you keep up to 20% free disk space to keep your laptop fast and at low power consumption. And a weekly disk defragment with wise care 365 is also a good option for reducing the power consumption of your laptop battery.
