Are you running different programs on the vista machine? Do you have power save features enabled to make sure that the battery is being used in the best possible way??

this is normal. vista hogs everything from ram to battery life. if batt. life is important, get a bigger battery or tweak power options to dim the screen and use less processor and ram when unplugged. also, use hibernate and standby as much as you can.

oh ya im using the best power saving possiable. I just miss being able to work on the battery for a while. I guess thats what i get for going with vista but i have to use it because thats whats out now and we have to get use to it.
