Lenovo ideapad 710s battery drains very fast


Iv'e had the 710s for about two weeks. At first i would get about 5 - 5.5 hours of work time from it. But yesterday the battery started draininig very fast, and i'm now getting about 2.5 hours of work time. Iv'e not installed anything new or made any special changes. Any idea what this could be?

Welcome to the Forums Matan


Go to your power management settings (control panel > power options) 

change the default behaviour when you close the lid of the laptop to "shut down" (i'm sure it's set on sleep, or hibernate)

check out what the power button is set to do... it might be set to hibernate or sleep instead of shutting down.

Take your time, go through the advanced menu looking for power settings that indicate this laptop might be hibernating or sleeping rather than powering down.


Update us how it goes.
