I have recently bought a Dell XPS Touch. I'm dual booting Windows 7 with Fedora 16 (Verne). Right out of the box, Fedora reports 1 hour 26 minutes of battery life at full charge, while Windows reports a whopping 4 hours!!
What gives? Am I missing some
acpi module or something?
A friend suggested to me that this could be due to the fact that I'm using
nouveau instead of the proprietary
nvidia driver. Does that sound reasonable?
Now on Debian Wheezy and issue persists. Removed Fedora tag.
