Neon 1804 sinks battery on Thinkpad X1

Registered Member
Hi, i installed the latest neon (5.14.1 i believe) on a Thinkpad X1 tablet.

beside the unsupported touchpad buttons and suspend mode, the main problem is that on battery i can't make more than 2h.
On windows it lasts forever instead.

how to fix this? i see tp-smapi does not support my machine. is there anything at all i can do?
