New user here. Basically I want to maximise my battery life what can I do, turn off etc, plus anything else that I can do for speed? Should I use two different user profiles, one for battery life and one for speed?

Cheers.

Install Jupiter power manager .. see here:

BTW, if this is an ASUS EeePC, also install jupiter-support-eee

You can then easily switch between

Maximum Performance
Power On Demand
Power Saving


modes, from the tray icon :)
