There's a separate forum for Windows tablets:

Did you find a solution to this as my yoga 2 11 also has the same problem. I have read online that .3% drain is normal per hour which transates to around 7% per day. Mine lost 48% in 2 days.

Re: [Yoga 2 11] battery discharge when turned off

I also have this problem, if I was putting it to sleep 3% per hr would be acceptable. The problem is when TURNED OFF I lose 43 % in 28 hours that is just plain BS. I don't think these yoga's ever really turn off nor do they even go to hybrid sleep. I have an ASUS T100 that sleep's for days with small loss and when turned off losses nothing in a week

 

the intel program mentioned above is not installed on the yoga 2 11 best buy version

Terrys11, how long does your yoga last from a full charge?

I think i might have solved my drain problem. I removed the lenovo energy manager and charged up my yoga. I then unplugged t and left it for 24 hours. no drain. ymmv

I take it you ignored my previous advice, lol.

 

Also, make sure your EM software is not set to charge your USB ports. If so, you are probably losing your battery through that.
