The Sony VAIO RS Series battery life is pretty good. However, with people being mobile most of the times, various battery conservation methods need to be adopted to maximize the battery life. In Windows 7, the user should switch to Power Saver Plan from the battery icon in taskbar. Low power states like Sleep and hibernate should be used when not in use. Screen brightness should be adjusted and wireless should be switched off when not in use. Similarly, Bluetooth should also be switched off if not required. User should avoid using the hard drive and disk drive excessively because they consume more power. In some cases, upgrading the amount of memory will reduce hard drive usage. If laptop is set to run antivirus scans periodically, user should allow this to happen when it is connected to AC power, because this substantially increases hard drive usage while it is running.
