How to Tweek a Toshiba satellite A505D S6968 notebook to save battery power to last longer before recharging

Answers :

Only way is through the power settings in the control panel.
\015\012A few handy tricks are:
\015\012disable the wireless antenna when you are not using it (the device uses power while it continuously scans for networks)
\015\012dim the monitor as much as you can
\015\012remove cd's from the drive when you are not using it,
\015\012remove any SD cards or USB thumb drives when not in use
\015\012Hope this helps. Aside from all of this I recommend picking up a backup battery that can be swaped when your current one goes dead. In essence it doubles your use time.
Pretty limited possibilities-\015\012Go to the Power Options folder in your Control Panel; you'll find some settings there that can prolong battery life but they are mostly of a kind that disables your use.\015\012
\015\012If the ambient light conditions allow it, you can set screen brightness (contrast won't make any difference to power usage) to a lower point. This will help some since the inverter for the LCD backlight does require power even if the hard drive and CPU are at an idle or off.
