I don't know, this may be a hardware error, I have about 60% of my system at idle even when running like 4 programs and yet the temp is like 71 degrees
The Microsoft Client Server Runtime Server subsystem utilizes the process csrss.exe for managing the majority of the graphical instruction sets under the Microsoft Windows operating system. As such Csrss.exe provides the critical functions of the operating system, and its termination can result in the Blue Screen of Death being displayed.

Csrss.exe controls threading and Win32 console window features. Threading is where the application splits itself into multiple simultaneous running tasks. Threads supported by csrss.exe are different from processes in that threads are commonly contained within the process, with various threads sharing resources within the same process. The Win32 console is the plain text window in the Windows API system (programs can use the console without the need for image display).

In mobile devices such as notebooks and laptops, the process csrss.exe is closely dependent on power management schemes implemented by the system as defined under the Control Panel option.
End quoteI would say you are having problems with your power module. Most of the time they are part of the system board, other times, they are separate units. That would explain why you have inconsistent run times on battery. I will see if I can find the service manual for your unit and take a look.
