I've only maxed out the batttery once and got 3hrs 55 mins. That was with wifi on and only moderate use.
Hibernation I've never used so don't have any experience with that.
I installed from a USB stick but have since bought an external dvd - so would use that in future.
Take a look at this site http://dellmini9.blogspot.com/. There's pretty much all their is to know about the install. I know he's working on a complete guide at the moment.

I'm with whites7 on this one...I started with the XP drivers for functionality, then let Windows Update find all the appropriate drivers. It updated all drivers on its own with no problems. After a couple update cycles in a row, everything was identified and working properly.
