Adjusting microwave cooking times?

Does anyone know if there is a general rule for adjusting microwave cooking times if the given cooking time is for a microwave of a different wattage to your own?

Ours is a Panasonic 1100w (I think) and we often need to reduce times or the power level - sort of play it by ear! An example would be the microwave choc puddings on here - we dramatically reduce the suggested times and when cooking rice use full power only for the 1st 4 - 5 minutes, then lower to below half for the next 12 - 13 minutes.
My wife also uses the less button when cooking greens such as brocolli. Hope that helps.
