I recently purchased an Ideapad S530. The Battery is drainig when Off.
I already did:
- Disable 'Always on USB'
- Disable 'Turn of Fast Setup'
>> Some examples of the draining:
- A few days ago, I've shut it down for 21u and it drained from 90% to 74%.
- Yesterday/today, I've shut it down for 21u and it drained from 100% to 85%.
Can you please advise a solution? Thanks!

imho, if a BIOS update is unable to resolve the battery drain issue, then it likely to be a faulty battery (or motherboard) if no other owners are reporting the same issue.
In Windows 10, you can check the currently installed BIOS version by searching for 'System Information', or you can use the Novo button menu to enter F2 BIOS setup.
You haven't mentioned the full model number, but the s530-13iwl bios version 9RCN24WW(V2.04) released on 19 Apr 2019 according to Lenovo support page.
If the s530 was purchased very recently, you may wish to consider returning it for replacement instead of sending it to Lenovo for warranty repair.
