Recently got delivery of a brand new Yoga 730 13" from Lenovo directly and have it updated to latest Windows and Drivers and BIOS.
While the laptop is powered off, I am experiencing a pretty rapid battery drain I think. I am yet to make an accurate observation but it certainly feels like I come back to the laptop in a few hours and the battery remaining is much lower than I remember.
Anyone else experiencing this? I have already disabled Always On USB and have nothing plugged in to the USB ports except for the Active Pen 2 holder.

Did you disable fast start up? Also Wake on Lan. That will help a lot. It wont eliminate the drain while shutdown but will help.

No i havent disabled fast startup because i really like having that quick functionality. However, since at shutdown/hibernate all ram is dumped to SSD, what is draining the battery? There really should be no component on the laptop drawing power actively. I would understand some slow drain over weeks or months as all batteries do, but not at the rate I seemed to observe. I do need to measure this overnight to get a number though...
