P4's and laptop battery life

  Mark McConnell 22:56 07 Jun 2007

Hi, i have a P4 HT and i was wondering if i disable the hyper threading would it give me anymore life on my battery?


p.s what utilities could i use on vista to manage stuff like grapics card speed and processor speed.

Minimising use of CD/DVD drive and turning your screen brightness down would be more effective ways of extending the battery life. Disabling a feature that makes the CPU work more efficiently is not likely to help.

Thanks Brundle.
