Lenovo Ideapad Y500 issue - battery drain (shutdown)

2013-07-12, 14:02 PM

Hello,

 

I have ideapad y500 and  I've noticed that when ever I shut it off and power it back on the battery has drained. Its about 12% per night .. Its rly weird bcs i am not using "always on usb" or any others features. I think that it is HW bug or BIOS. I have noticed that when  i shut it down -> unplug the power cable then i remove and again attach the battery leave it for 12hours and there weren't any battery drain. So it only appears when i just unplug the power cable and leave it.

 

I have read some topics(some ppl have the same problem) but i haven't find any solution.

 

Is there any solution to solve this problem??

 

Bios version is the latest one.. I haven find any newest bios ver on your website.

 

 

Tomas

I'm assuming you have win 8. Try this:

  1. On the Windows 8 Start Screen, press CNTL + ALT + DEL.
  2. On the next screen select the Power icon located in the lower Right.
  3. When the options appear, press the SHIFT key and select "Restart".
  4. When the next screen appears, select "Turn off your PC".
  5. The unit will power down completely.

See if you still have the battery draining.

Note: Even if the unit is off, a little drain is expected to maintain the clock, etc.

Try removing Energy Management and re-install. Reboot after reinstallation.

I'm having a similiar issue where my battery drains between 5-15%.over night.  This seemed to occur after I did the battery gauge reset..  My other topic and reply to another thread have not been addressed.  I saw a couple threads where the people experiencing this issue had their motherboards replaced.  If this is a solution, how would we go through the process?
