Please use readable colors in your posts.

You can do little optimizations in order to save a little amount of power with linux, but the battery life will always be shorter than on windows.

Try to install and configure laptop-mode-tools.

Because even applying all the tips for powersaving I've heard of, the battery life is yet a bit shorter with Linux. So this is the best we can have for now.
