Battery consumption

Hi KDE users,

I have a little question to answer about battery consumption on KDE. Well,
 I'm not going mad, but when I use KDE, my laptop's battery is discharged
 quicker than using other alternatives, like XFCE (I haven't tested GNOME on
 my laptop computer).

Right, I know: KDE is a complete, wonderful, complex Desktop Environment and
there are some backgrounds processes spining up my hard disk and taking some

So, the question is, what tricks (if any) do you use to reduce your
favourite's desktop environment power consumption?

Thank you all.
