Linux: Use TLP to save three hours of laptop battery

Install Linux Advanced Power Management:

add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
apt-get update
apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw
tlp start

That should save your about two or three hours.

Disabling your touch screen is done via xinput. I disabled my touchscreen and touchscreen pen whatever that is.

Issue xinput -list and then xinput disable 100, where 100 is the the ID you found in xinput. That saves very little normally, but may be worth a go.
