For the Eee PC 1000H under normal use (surfing, emailing, IM) between 4 to 5 hours. Not sure about idle as I have mine programmed to go to standby after 20 minutes.

i get about 5 hrs or surfing, taking notes, etc. with brightness at level 3. this is with vista though -> supposedly has better power management, though i dont notice a huge difference from winxp

with everything turned down (wifi off, bt off, etc) i can get about 7 hrs of battery life.

with the casual msn, downloading, surfer etc and very light gaming my battery goes for 5-6 hours when on power saving mode. Maybe its because it is really new. The predetermined timing arnt right most of the time, they even twich. One time, it told me my battery was critical but it still worked for one and an half hour.

5-6hours is ur answer ;P
