IdeaPad Flex 14- battery drains when laptop is put in Sleep mode

2014-07-08, 22:41 PM

The battery drains rapidly even when in Sleep mode.  I am seeing battery life of only about 2 hours (very disappointing) of this IdeaPad that I purchased in May.  Even worse is that putting the laptop to sleep does not conserve what charge remains on the battery.  I read another post from 2013 that said to disable fast boot mode in the power options, but I cannot find that setting to change.  Does anyone have suggestions - to increase battery life AND to keep the battery from draining while in Sleep mode?


Running W8.1 with balanced power settings.
