Using Media Player on Battery Power
Since optical drives consume a lot of power, your overall battery life will be significantly shorter when 
operating the optical drive continuously (such as watching a DVD movie) than during standard operation. 
Many movie run-times are longer than your notebook can support on a single charged battery. If you are 
watching a DVD movie on battery power you may need to swap in an additional, charged battery or attach 
AC power during the movie to view it in its entirety.
To Watch a Movie on Battery Power: 
1
Have an additional full-charged battery or your AC adapter ready for use.
2
Start watching your DVD movie. 
3
When the low battery warning occurs, immediately stop the movie and exit the media player.
