Configure the start up programs
The programs that run during the start up of the computer cause the system to extend the time that it takes for the computer to start up. The programs that are installed on the system generally are programmed to start up and be loaded into the system memory. The start up of the operating system will be extended and you will have to wait for a longer period of time. You can program the operating system to select the programs that are needed to run during the start up process.
Extend battery life
The average battery life of the Toshiba Satellite U500 is about four to five hours. This can allow you to use the laptop unplugged from the AC power supply for an extended period of time. You can increase the battery life on the Toshiba Satellite U500 by using a spare battery along with the system. You can also improve the battery life by running fewer applications on the system and reducing the screen brightness that takes up a lot of battery life.
The prolonged use of the laptop will cause the hard disk to hold a lot of unwanted files and information that are collected by errors generated or even the temporary files that are downloaded while browsing the Internet. The files on the system will accumulate on the secondary storage, thus occupying the space on the hard disk that can be used for other files or be freed. There should be enough free space on the system for the fast retrieval of data from the hard disk. You can use System Tools such as the disk clean up and the disk defragmenter to ensure that the data on the hard disk is kept organized. Run the System Tools periodically to ensure the laptop performs at its best.
