If you are running Vista with the AERO glass effects (you know the transparency), you might have discovered that when you are running in battery, it runs out faster than normally.
One guy got tired of this and created an application that turns AERO off when you run on battery. You find the code and the EXE file in his blog.
I will soon jump on a plane to KL, and my battery will last all the way!
