Should I be worried?
My battery power doesn't last long (~1hr), could this be the reason?
How can I fix this (if it has to be fixed at all)?

A single session fix that I found is as follows. Go to the Tunables tab. There, one of the options will be :

Good, and watch as your power consumption drops to a more bearable level
But this fix has to be done every time you reboot. I wish there were a way to make this permanent.
