How do I use battery setting Toshiba satellite features?

Hello!

I formatted by new Toshiba laptop, however, after the formatting I realize that the battery life has substantially gone down. Is there a particular battery setting Toshiba satellite that could better the life of the battery? It is worrying since I use the laptop a lot in field work. Could it be that the formatting has something to do with it?

Hi Lynn,

Hope you are fine.

Sometimes, formatting the laptop thoroughly can slow down the laptop battery but it is not the problem in every case. Keep in mind the usage of battery also. Do not plug in your laptop when its charging is full.

Only plug in when there is 25%remaining. Try to hibernate not standby because standby consumes more battery than hibernation. Try to purchase a heat sink, it will absorb all the heat coming out and keep the laptop calm and cool.

Hope it will work.

Thanks

In reality, there is no application that can minimize the usage of the battery or save the battery consumption. Even if there are no applications running on the computer, as long as the machine is running, the battery still gets consumed but in a much lesser rate. The battery consumption increases as you begin to open applications.

Also, the battery consumption is higher if you are using applications related to graphics or videos. This is why the battery consumption is at the highest when you are playing a game on your computer. The heavier it uses graphics, the higher it consumes battery.

If you want to save battery and you don’t use applications that consume big resources, you should probably begin with the startup programs on your computer. The startup programs are the applications that run when your computer boots or when Microsoft Windows starts booting. These are the programs that always run when Windows starts.

The more programs start with Windows, the higher the battery consumption is even if your computer is idle. Aside from the battery, startup programs consume the biggest part of the memory because they are loaded automatically even if you are not using them. To save battery, you need to remove programs from the startup group that you think is not important and you are not using.

You don’t actually need to uninstall the program just to remove them from the startup. You can use a program that can disable applications from the startup. To help you disable programs in the startup group, go to Download CCleaner then download and install the free version. Once installed, start CCleaner then go to “Tools” on the left pane and select “Startup”.

Next, in “Windows” tab, scroll down and select the application you wish to disable. Click “Disable” to deactivate the program from the startup group.

And that’s it. The program will no longer start with Windows the next time you start your computer. If you want to register CCleaner, download the Code then follow the instructions.
