The best distro for the longest battery life?

I am using crunchbang 11 in a hp mini netbook. Is there a better distro for lower power consumption?

While there are many factors that will contribute to/deplete battery life, generally speaking the more "high-end features" employed, the quicker it will drain your battery. I suggest looking at Puppy Linux for this hardware configuration. It is a light weight distribution that was created to support older (and thus power hungry) hardware. Another distribution would be Damn Small Linux. Start here for information on all the major distributions available: http://distrowatch.com . You would also want to Google "your PC model" & Linux to see what other's have been able to accomplish with your set-up. Good luck & have fun!
