Battery drain while turned off Yoga 710

Hi guys,

 

In February, I received my Yoga 710-14ikb and I was thrilled because of the advertised battery life and low weight. 

However, I have started noticing that 5 months in, my battery drains 10-15% (in 17 hours) when it's turned off. I have set the "what does the power button do" to shut down and the ''close the lid'' to do nothing. There is no heavy usage of the laptop, no downloading etc.

In my previous laptop (ideapad 510), this happened as well and eventually progressed into losing ~50% in 48 hours. They ended up repairing it twice and taking it back in the end and this cost a lot of time. 

 

Does anybody have any solutions for this problem?

Kind regards,

Maarten

Re: Battery drain while turned off Yoga 710

Hi MaartenTol,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

To start with, ensure that you have an updated BIOS (Version 0GCN22WW(V1.06) Updated Date:2017-02-13).

You can check likewise on event manager if there were an activity during the time it was supposed to be off.

 

With a discharged battery maybe 20%, fully charge it and open device manager.

Click on system devices then Intel Management Interface, right click to open Properties and choose if Power Management tab is available then uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". 

Restart and turn off to check later if the battery level changed significantly.

 

Else,  you can try going to the BIOS by using the Novo button to turn on.

Choose BIOS set up and then move to Boot tab and disable fast boot

Fn + F10 to save and restart. Shut down the system and recheck later for any changes in battery level.

Note that battery would usually have one year covered warranty as consumable part so if even the above steps failed, then it is recommended to call technical support and have them informed.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards
