Is there any way to conserve battery power on a laptop?

But not just staying off of it...

Dim the brightness level.

Many ways! You need to know how old your processing unit is
how many accessories are plugged in.
How old your Charger is.
Try having as little running programs as possible.
Dim your screen
Adjust your volume accordingly. (from what I hear headphones are more energy conserving)

Dim the brightness, also there are settings to control the amount of power it uses "Balanced, Power Saver, and High performance" Go to control panel, then to power settings and change it to Power saver.

"msconfig" works great.
Turn off whatever you don't need running.
At start up, tons of junk loves to load, Adobe, Java, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
These are things which will load when needed, but love to run in the background when not needed, killing ram and power.
Turn then off in "msconfig".

This is if you are running Windows.

There is no need to have tons of programs running down below.

That and turn down the brightness, haha.

Dim the brightness level and enable airplane mode. The wifi and screen take up most of the battery

Yes.
Don't hold it on your lap, put it on a table or something. When it's on your lap it causes it to get hotter quicker making the fan run harder and causing the battery to die quicker.
Keep it plugged in.
Dim the brightness.

If you want to keep your data saved on it, you can switch it to Sleep Mode. There's also Hibernation Mode, which completely shuts it off, but keeps everything looking exactly the way it is. (Same windows open, programs open and ready to run)
