OS X Lion Battery Life Reduction

There seems to be some kind of conflict between the Wacom Tablet Driver and OSX Lion (10.7) – The Wacom Tablet Driver (listed as pentabletdriver in activity monitor) seems to be using up CPU cycles (or something). I was being estimated 3:40 hours on a full charge with no apps running – after “killing”, or ending the process for pentabletdriver, I am now being estimated 6:40 hours with a few applications open… back in business!


So, if you’re suffering from reduced battery life after having upgraded to Lion – try killing the pentabletdriver process!

    1. Hi Jordan, Sorry it’s taken a while to get back to you. To kill the process, you need to open “Activity Monitor” – it should be under utilities in the applications folder. In the process name column, look for “PenDriverTablet”, and click on it. Then, click the big red “Quit Process” button.
