Legion y720 battery life halved overnight

Hey!

My 2 month old Legion y720 suddenly dropped from around 4 hours battery life at 100% to barely 1,5 hours at 100%.

This happened overnight, and that leads me to believe it could be some updates interferring perhaps?

As I am not nearly an expert on these things, I was hoping someone here might have some ideas as to what might be causing this.

 

Thanks!

Re: Legion y720 battery life halved overnight

I have bought lenovo Y720 (i7 7700HQ, GTX 1060, FHD) today and the moment I bought I found that when I click on Display Settings then the mouse lags. And Sometimes on other operations of desktop too.

I have ran full windows update and updated all nvidiea drivers but still no help.

Can you please suggest me that whats the issue and should I exchange or refund this laptop? As its very annoying considering such an expensive laptop.

If win10, did you install Lenovo Settings app from the windows store?

Current version is 3.169.00 .

Re: Legion y720 battery life halved overnight

I have had quite a few issues with the display settings myself. Not the ones you are experiencing, so Im not sure as to what might be causing it. My issues have been with the nvidia gpu. Several games have refused to run over 10fps, when new drivers have been released from nvidia, so I have had to rollback. When I first got the laptop I also had quite a few performance issues because the lenovo apps and my antivirus werent friends.

Check in Lenovo Settings app whether the conservation mode is enabled.
