Yes, for some reason the battery life on the MacBook pros are not so good they usually use 1% of battery for every 1.5 minutes. If you turn your brightness down and turn the keyboard brightness down, then the battery should have longer life.

I tried this but it didn't seem to work. Does the Dock show that it's using lots of power? (Mine was miniscule, but I quit it anyway).
I've never seen my battery indicator suggesting I have over 4 hours of battery, and after an hour of use I'm often at just over 2 hours left. This is a problem, right?
I called AppleCare and they say my battery says it's OK and I'm to take it to someone to get a hardware test.

Dowload this App. It tells you about how healthy your battery is and shows you other info too about your Macbook Pro.
You can access the "Activity Monitor" from there to see the CPU percentage and many more.
Hope this helps?
