Not much you can really do, the P4 runs extremely hot, and therefore, your fan runs all the time. Besides the power management that Emperor mentioned above,
1) Only turn on your Wireless Internet when you are using it
2) Turn off your sound
3) HP should sell a 12 cell battery for this, I think it comes with a standard 6 cell.
