    I'm blogging whatever I wanna share to my audience. Sometimes, I share with descriptions, or my personal opinion and sometimes I didn't, so you have to figure it out yourself. You can read it, digest it and do what ever you like. Do not always believe what you read. Use your brain to find out the truth.

Make your mobile world free from the power outlet when you are on-the-go with your laptop by keeping your battery healthy with this Friedbeef's Top 15 Ways to Extend Your Laptop's Battery Life. Believe it or not, one of the tips to extend your laptop's battery life is by regularly Defrag your hard rive. Logically, because when your hard drive can work fast, it consume less power. So, remember to make your hard drive as efficient as possible by defragging it regularly. (but not while it’s on battery of course!) Mac OSX is better built to handle fragmentation so it may not be very applicable for Apple systems.

Another great tips I would like to highlight is to Hibernate your laptop rather than to put it on Standby. Although placing a laptop in standby mode saves some power and you can instantly resume where you left off, it doesn’t save anywhere as much power as the hibernate function does. Hibernating a PC will actually save your PC’s state as it is, and completely shut itself down.

How to Hibernate Windows XP

Here's my quick tip for Windows XP users to hibernate your laptop/PC:
  1. Click On Start > Turn Off Computer
  2. When the Turn Off Computer window appear, you should notice there is three button. Orange for Stand By, Red for Turn Off and Green for Restart. Now press Shift Key on your keyboard and notice the Stand By Button turn to Hibernate.
  3. While keeping your Shift pressed, click on the Hibernate Button.

Most of the other tips involve smart power economy, like quitting running programs and disabling hardware you aren't using. If you do much work unplugged, following a few of these tips could help improve your battery life significantly.
