On every notebook I have, RHL/FC has always had noticeably worse battery life 
than SUSE (personally, I dual boot), going back just over 4 years now.  I 
have run Ubuntu/Kubuntu and Knoppix CDs a couple of times, but not enough to 
be able to compare them, either.  Several people I know have mentioned 
noticing similarly short battery life with FC compared to other distros.

I haven't tried running any *BSD on here, so I don't know about that.

I would love to see battery life with Fedora right up there with the other 
Linux & BSD systems.  I don't know what to try, either.  So far, I've just 
resigned myself to the fate that battery life is just going to be shorter 
with Fedora.
