I would like to know if there is a way to make a minimalist account for using my laptop on the go to conserve processing power and battery life. My laptop runs out of power pretty quickly (the battery is fine, just too many background processes I think). I'd like to just use Google Chrome on this user account. Can I disable system processes on only one user account or does it affect all of them. Also, should I use blackviper's barebones recommendations?
I just want a profile for when I'm not plugged in, is light weight in terms of OS demands, and will help conserve battery life.
