MUNICH (dpa) – To get more life out of the battery of a notebook computer, users should chose the appropriate energy program and also frequently use sleep mode.
The Windows Control Panel offers many opportunities for power saving, according to German computer magazine PC Welt. Most suitable is the “Balanced” program.
In addition, users should put the notebook into sleep mode during short working breaks.
Waking a computer from sleep or hibernation mode uses less power and is faster than booting up from a powered-off state.
