No battery life in Win7
I performed a clean install of Win7 RC on a Dell Inspiron 6000. Had a few troubles getting the dell drivers installed. Upon running the laptop on battery, Win7 almost immediately shuts down or hibernates (within a minute or 2). I booted to the bios
and checked the status of the battery - all good. Laptop will run for 1hr+ when booted to the bios. It's a new battery too. An observation...
the battery.dll file in sys32 shows a date modified of 9/20/2006.

Thanks for posting to the Answers Forum.
It sounds like your Power Options are set to put the computer into Sleep after a few minutes.
You can adjust the delay time for Sleep by clicking Start and typing "power options".
Right-click on the entry that appears toward the top, and click "Run as Administrator".
You may be asked for your password.
In the window that opens up, click on "change when the computer goes to sleep" and check the setting next to "put the computer to sleep:".
Please let us know if this helps.
