before i got my m7 i looked at battery power for the model and most people said it gets about 3 hours with most power sving turned off. with mine set at longest life setting (which ive changed so the yellow bar is as short as it can be (meaning longest life, lowest power), the power indicator shows that when at 99% battery, i only have 2 hours battery time (+or- about 10 minutes depending on what im doing) and that seems to be about what i get from it. this is with the wireless off, no cd drive, backlight at lowest setting etc.
this laptop is now only two weeks old so it cannot be degradeation of the battery, so does anyone have an idea of what the problem is, or any way i can get longer life (my old m275 had a battery calibration function) without buying a new battery???
help would be very much appreciated as i really need the longer life, and 2 hours isnt really acceptable for me.

Have you tried downloading the latest BIOS release for your specific model M7?

If you can get me the exact model number, i'll post a link to where you can download the latest BIOS revision.
