By using key combinations you can easily switch among your virtual desktops. Try VirtuaWin. If you have a mouse with programmable buttons you can make your experience even better.

If you don't want to use a mouse you can also use flicks.

BatteryBar Pro

Most computer makers will advertise an "up to X" amount of battery life. Usually you cannot get that much battery life. You would have to create an optimal scenario to achieve those numbers. I would recommend BatteryBar Pro to get an "average" of your battery life. This software records how much you get with each session and then gives you a more proper average runtime estimate. Try BatteryBar Pro.

Have you seen some of those terrible desktops filled with shortcuts. It's so easy to add shortcuts to the desktop, but properly managing them is a hassle. Stardock Fences is a program that helps you deal with this. They incorporate "fences" to group shortcuts. Try Stardock Fences.
