with FC5 I tried different powersaving profiles what in fact did not matter anything (unless I closed the lid of course), also my processor does not jump to higher speeds nor the fan speed goes up a lot so my guess is that this is some acpi battery issue.

I've done a few things. I'm using radeonfb for console video(dynamicclocks). Enabled dynamicclocks for X, running cpuspeed, running gnome-power-manager (make sure LCP is suspended in a short amount of time when on battery) and I get > 4hours on FC5 with my IBM T42.

Good enough for me, don't know how much better that could get.
