Bug Description

Acer Aspire VN7-792G
Ubuntu 15.10 (latest updates)

On windows battery life is around 4h.
On ubuntu no more than 2h, best case.

I've tested with ubuntu doing nothing (minimal number of process), wifi off, network over cable, no sound and 2h is the best I have.
I've tested with Windows, watching movie, surfing, wifi on, and I get more than 3h of battery lifetime.

I'm running on kernel 4.5rc5 (for wifi and touchpad support) with intel card only (nvidia 960m turned off) and the battery usage is not so dramatic. You should try if it helps you too.
