    There are very few who have resolved this problem other than reverting back to Snow Leopoard (as I have done). There are many who mysteriously do not have the problem or think they have fixed the problem but don't provide sound reasons for how they fixed it. Some don't realize they have a problem and apparently that is what Apple is banking on, maybe because they are too busy with IOS to be bothered with OSX fixes

    I think people would notice if they had this problem. And your last statement and a link to one hand-picked article sum up the unrealistic and ill informed attitude towards an issue that is only effecting a small number. 126 pages represents little in a trouble shooting forum these days. A handfull of disgruntled users can make up a large percentage of that in no time. And as for those who didn't post their fix, maybe it was embarrasingly simple or they got sick of the bickering in these threads.

    Maybe, but please don't dismiss this problem as only affecting a small number of people as your posts on this subject seem to repeatedly imply. It's happening to enough people that they should be taken seriously. The problem is real and maybe some are OK with only getting 3 - 4 hours of battery life on a MacBook Pro running OS X Lion as there are some who don't use it away from a power source that long. It's not unrealistic to expect the same battery life as with Snow Leopard. The link I included was to show that this is gaining attention outside of Apple and hopefully they will listen.

    Mulligans missus,

     

    I have no idea why you keep saying such nonsense, and frankly I find your comments insulting.

     

    No one here can say that they can quantify the exact number of affected users, but what we can definitely conclude is that the issue is real and that it is really affecting the performance of a lot of machines. A lot can be 100, 1000, or 1000000. And honestly I don't care. I want MY machine fixed. A thread with 200000+ views is definitely not something to be ignored. The problem is real and I find your comments and these links to Apple battery care articles condescending and to me your logic is so flawed that it almost seems like some Apple spin.

     

    I'll post this message for every ******** suggestion and link to the Apple battery care article.

    Very good. Hope your battery lasts long enough. Meanwhile I will use and enjoy my Lion MacBook pro for 6-7 hours.

     

    Cheerio

    What are you saying? That we are all idiots and that that artcle is going to fix our problems?

    Oh, forgive me. This article.

    To Everyone posting on here lately:

     

    You are either trolls or morons trying to pick fights. Trolls who are supposedly leaving the Apple brand due to poor quality (?!?!?) - enjoy your plastic Acer with garbage software.  I think they are on sale at STAPLES. 

     

    Everyone else - KINDLY **** if you aren't here to help with this battery issue.   

     

    This is real and it isn't right.  My wife's far lesser machine gets 100% more batterly life than my mbpro.  If you don't have an issue, GOOD FOR YOU.  Go troll your warcraft message boards.  Clear the line so we can use this venue as a constructive tool for troubleshooting.

    There are only one or two people who consistently provoke fights by claiming everyone else here is lame and haltng.  Naturally, people react.  But your point's well taken.

     

    Except for Lion, I love my Macs.  They are superior computers in every way.  Lion is a momentary problem.  It will go more silently than it came, and then we can get onto the Canine line of OSs.  I favor Dire Wolf as 11.0.

     

    I just want to point out that battery life is a highly subjective issue whatever the OS.  I have SL on my late 2009 MBP and with 75% capacity and a 99% charge, it's calculatng 4.5 hours duration.  That would be about six hours if the battery was fully charged, okay but no great shakes (although I have several process operating in background).  My 2010 MPA does a little better.

     

    This is a good opportunity to question Apple's decision to sell machines with built-in batteries.  Removable batteries enabled competition that resulted in batteries superior to Apple's at the time; they allowed the user to charge one battery, using converters that worked really fast, while using another;  and if things went really sour with the battery, you didn't have to send your machine to Apple and lose hours of service or possibly scrap the entire system.  I liked carrying around a spare battery.  I could extend a session indefinitely, even running energy-intensive applications, simply by carrying more batteries.

     

    Best of both worlds would be high-capacity battieries that could be removed.  Bring back spare batteries and probably 3/4 of these comments wouldn't be necessary, we could find our own way to longer battery life without interruptions to our routines.

    Oh sorry, I though you were trying to be funny because the answer was quite obvious. I was, of course, reffering to articles that CT and other users keep posting. This one and this one.

     

     

    My original opinion is this if you need memory refreshing:

     

    No one here can say that they can quantify the exact number of affected users, but what we can definitely conclude is that the issue is real and that it is really affecting the performance of a lot of machines. A lot can be 100, 1000, or 1000000. And honestly I don't care. I want MY machine fixed. A thread with 200000+ views is definitely not something to be ignored.

    Yep, that's the dumb one.

     

    Thanks for the reminder

    I think it's time to embargo Mulligans missus who's added nothing to the conversation in 126 pages except to remind us that he/she is without blemish and everyone else here is a dolt.  Immature, not funny, without value.  Just here to interrupt the flow.  Troll, troll, troll.  Watch, an attempted clever retort will follow.  A real button-pusher.  Ignore it.  Period.
