A friend of mine has been having a lot of problems with his laptop about
battery life.. When using Linux (Fedora,Ubuntu) the battery life is a lot
worse than when using Windows.

He's been trying to identify the problem with powertop, disable services
etc, but hasn't been able to match the battery life of Windows.

Have you guys thought about this? 

Sounds like something to test during these 'Fit and Finish' days..
