OS X Mountain Lion may be causing battery problems

The new Mac OS X release codenamed Mountain Lion took the Mac world by storm becoming the most popular Mac OS X release ever. However, despite its huge success users now claim there are problems with the latest Mac OS X creation.

Users of the Mac OS X forums have started a number of threads complaining that Mountain Lion has significantly reduced battery life compared to the older Lion release. So far it appears something in the background is draining battery life with some users speculating the Spotlight indexing function is the culprit. Others say it is the antivirus software used but so far no pattern has been found and the real reason for the shorter battery life remains unknown.

Apple has not commented on the issue so far but stay alert – a software fix may be coming soon.
