I have a new Dell Precision 5540 notebook that will typically run 6 hours on a battery charge. It runs on Windows 10 pro x64, has an 8-core i9 processor, 32 gig Ram and a 1 TB SSD.
I do most of my software development work in a VM running Windows 10 x64 (latest VMWare workstation version) and when that VM is running, the battery drains in only 3 hours. I have assigned 4 cores and 8GB Ram to the VM.
Is there any way I can reduce the power consumption of the VM? 3 hours runtime is very limiting while travelling.
