How to improve battery life of my ARCHOS 80 Cobalt?

I have ARCHOS 80 Cobalt tab. The battery life of my ARCHOS 80 Cobalt is amazing. It's more or less at the same range as Archos promises.
However, my battery information shows that device in idle consumes about half amount of the battery in comparison to the display (at 25% brightness). I wonder whether we can reduce battery consumption of the device during idle state.

RE: How to improve battery life of my ARCHOS 80 Cobalt?

Tablets operate on a sort of spectrum. On one end you could put battery life, on the other end all those options like wifi/bluetooth/sync (amongst other things). If you want great battery life you can't have those on all the time. If you want those on all the time, you won't get great battery life. It is best to find the compromise that works best for you and what you want most out of your tablet.
Here are a couple of things that you could consider - adjust the screen brightness, do not use live wallpapers, switch off networks when not in use (WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS), adjust update intervals for widgets (do you really need twitter/facebook notifications every half hour?). You could also consider downloading a battery monitoring app such as JuiceDefender.
