I have a Dell Precision 3560 (less than a month old), relatively new to Linux in general and brand new to ZorinOS.
Using ZorinOS 16 Core, I've been getting around 10h of predicted battery life from a full charge (this seems ambitious but generally the battery drains broadly in line with this).
Currently kernel version: 5.11.0-38-generic
I updated last night (sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade) and am now getting around 2.5h predicted battery life (battery goes down in line with this) - classic n00b move, I've no idea what the specific updates were, but I'm reasonably confident they were ZorinOS rather than any other things installed.
My usage is no different - I'm using the Slimbook Battery app in energy saving mode, with the same programs, services etc... As far as I'm aware I've made no other changes that would result in such drastically poorer battery life (both actual and predictions).
Any help / advice or has anyone else noticed this? I like my good battery life and want it back!
