Maybe you know this already, but your laptop probably has an option that can turn off your screen. The point of the feature is to turn off the laptop's screen while it is hooked up to an external monitor, but it hopefully would work without another monitor attached. One reason to hope that they don't try to be too smart and only let you turn it off when it auto-detects an external monitor. If the monitor is off you should get significantly better battery life. You'll have to look in your manual to figure out how to do it, because every laptop is different and mine is so old that it is not relevant to modern laptops.

XI wish I had known about superlight laptops when I bought this one, but
it's not that heavy. I agree with you. These things need better battery
life. Well, I am just thankful for what I have. It was the best birthday
