Tip 5: Shut down desktop gadgets
Windows 7 and Vista lets you run useful mini-pro-
grams called Gadgets, such as weather tickers, di-
rectly from the desktop. Shutting them down can
help your laptop battery last longer. In Windows
Vista, right-click anywhere in the Sidebar (usually
on the right of the screen) and select Close Sidebar.
In Windows 7, close individual Gadgets by moving
your mouse over a gadget and click the X that ap-
pears. To reinstate your Gadgets in Vista, right click
the Sidebar icon in the Notification Area and select
Open. In Windows 7, right-click the desktop and
select Gadgets, then drag and drop them onto your
desktop.

Bonus Tip: Unplug your laptop when fully-
charged
When your laptop is fully-charged and turned-off,
leaving it plugged-in to the mains has a debilitating
effect on the long-term life of the battery. Over time
all batteries lose a portion of their capacity and need
to be replaced, but avoiding this mistake will maxi-
mise the battery's lifetime.
