Help with Battery Backup

Does anyone know where I can find the operating software and a manual for an HP Powerwise 2100 Battery Backup? APC bought HP's battery backups unit in 1994, but this unit seems to work great. I want to control it from my PC but have no software and no instructions. I've visited all of the manual sites and software download sites I can think of.

Is there anything I can do to make my laptop battery last longer?

Is there anything I can do to make my laptop battery last longer? I've had two HP laptops, and within months the batteries in both of them stopped holding a full charge. Presently, the icon indicates a fully charged battery, but when I unplug the laptop the battery dies within 30 minutes. Is this an HP specific problem? Is there a "better" kind of battery I can buy?
