powerbook battery life sucking



i initially thought it was something to do with my powerbookbattery dying on me prematurely. i've only had this for a year, and its been giving me quite consistent 2-3 hour battery life, but recently, my battery life has dropped to around 30 minutes. i was resigning to the fact that maybe my battery has died a horrible death, coz i have it plugged in so much and not doing the discharge recharge cycles. crap, my warranty just ran out as well!


but actually taking a look at the forums, it seems to be that many people are experiencing this?


also there's some analysis of powerbook batteries here, and even suggestions of resetting the PMU in a desperate attempt to gain any sort of usage out if it. is it because i play too much quake? :(
