Windows 7: 9 cell battery not living up to its "potential"

I'm talking of high temps, 60+ degrees Celsius. computer components can get this hot, and anything under direct sunlight (not in the shade) can get even higher.
Air temperature isn't going to get so high, I hope.

If the report is a file, attach it to the post (use advanced posting panel, not the quick post panel, and you'll see "attach files" in Addiditonal Options), otherwise post it.

Turn it into a zip compressed file (this tells you how) and attach the zip file.

ok, nothing wrong. All just said that you have programs and settings that prevent the computer from going into sleep mode automatically or that someone disabled the screen dimming when you aren't on AC, or other settings you have made.

The battery info part tells that the battery is 100% health.

Design Capacity 85248
Last Full Charge 85248

The above numbers should be your battery capacity in mAh (milliAmpere per hour), if they match, it's not degraded. As it gets older, the "last full charge" will decrease as the battery capacity decreases.

In case you haven't done it, this tutorial, helps you tweak your power plan advanced settings, to make power saving mode (or any other) more effective.
