  • Disable programs that you do not use. At the moment that programs keep running in the background, they also continue to use energy.
  • Do you not use wireless internet or bluetooth? Switch these functions off. The moment you leave them on, they keep looking for networks or devices and that costs battery failure.
  • Disconnect USB devices. Do you use a mouse or do you often charge your iPhone via your Mac? Disconnect them if you do not use them. More time to use your Mac!
