Tech Guide : Tips to increase the Laptop Battery life

Laptops are surely a savoir. We use them as per our convenience, wherever or whenever we want.
What if you are doing some important work on your laptop and battery runs out?
It irritates right? and it irritates more when you dont have access to power supply to charge it. Keep a few points in mind and increase your laptops battery life to avoid any irritating situation.

Here are few tips to increase your laptops battery life :

Turning off Wi-Fi –
These days most of the time we use Wi-Fi to connect our
laptop. Even in offices it seems easy to connect the users via Wi-Fi, as it
saves not only the wire fitting cost but their maintenance as well. When we are
in a zone where no Wi-Fi is available or available but we don’t have to use, in
that case our laptop keeps on making its efforts to catch the signal in the
background which in turn costs the battery. Hence it’s always advisable to turn
off the Wi-Fi if you are not going to use it.
Using the Hibernate option
instead of sleep –
When you close the lid of your laptop then the system
keeps on sending the power to RAM and motherboard to alive the current session
in the memory, as it helps to awake the system quickly when we open the laptop
again. It is also known as ‘sleep’ mode but it actually consumes a lot of
battery to wake the system.
The batter way is to turn the ‘Hibernate’ mode on in the
laptop. It will save its memory to the disk and power the laptop off
completely. If you open the laptop again then it will take comparatively longer
time than sleep mode but will definitely save lots of battery. So whenever you
have to take long breaks always use the ‘Hibernate’ option by doing the
following
Type ‘Lid’ into the Start menu text field -> Click on
‘When I close the lid’ -> Hibernate -> Save the changes
Lowering the screen
brightness –
Nowadays brightness is one of the main reason for any gadget
to consume the battery. You should always reduce the screen brightness to the
optimum level. It not only saves you battery but the after ill effects of the
strain on your eyes caused by the high brightness.
Lightening the startup programs
These are the programs that starts with the start of your
system (like chat software etc.). There are so many programs that we select to
open while start up when we install them. Be extra attentive while installing software,
as these can be opened later whenever we require then within ‘All Programs’.
There is a registry key to get rid of these programs. If you remove these
programs entries then you can easily get rid of them, in turn your memory and
CPU will be lighter in load and battery life will be longer. You can remove
them by traversing the following registry path –
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
Turning off Applications and
Processes –

There are multiple application and processes that keep on
chewing the battery in the background. It is always advisable to close them off
by opening the Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc or Ctrl+Alt+Del). From task manager
you can view the processes that are opened by system and your session. System
related processes are always critical and can affect the OS, so be extra
careful before closing them off. However the processes run by your ID can be
best decided by you to kill or ended if not in use.
Follow these easy steps and increase your laptop’s battery life for hasslefree usage.
