Yoga 11e Chromebook Wireless-Status Indicator problem

I recently got my Yoga 11e Chromebook and the wireless-status indicator which is ontop of the laptop's screen. 

 

When I shut my laptop down, the light doesn't go off. Everything else is off like the ThinkPad light.

 

It is draining my battery power and I looked through support and I couldn't get any help from it.

 

I have the latest Chrome OS (Version 39).

 

I believe it could be a hardware problem but if it is a software problem, can you please advise me on how to fix this problem.

 

 

Thank you

Any help at all?

 

I desperately need help. 

 

I found out that some other people who got the same laptop as mine have this problem and some don't.

ahwlong,

 

I've not worked on the Chromebook, but I'll see if we have any ideas on this.

 

Wireless should shut off when you close the lid and the system goes to sleep.  Expected battery drain on sleep might be 10% per day just powering the memory.   How much of a drain are you experiencing?

 

On some other systems we heard about some power management issues with version 36 / 37 of Chrome and note the current version should be 40.  I note you are reporting on version 39.

 

Can you check for updates on your system?

Mark,

I rarely put my laptop to sleep. The wireless indicator doesn't shut off when I close the lid for some reason. I recently updated to v40. (when it came out)

Thank you,

Mark, 

 

Do I reset my chromebook? When I first got it, it was on update 36. Now it is on Update 40

Any response at all?

 

I've resetted my chromebook and it isn't software so it is definitely hardware.

Bump. Need a response ASAP. Battery draining to 0% every 2 days. Whenever I recharge my Chromebook to 100%, the battery drops to 92% the next morning and the Chromebook is off!

 

Please help me!

I just press the right side button to turn off the machine (of course unlabelled).

 

This is not a system to do any work.  Just an expensive Chrome Web browser that allows you to get their advertising and click per view income.

 

My Lenovo Chromebook was given to me gratis by another photographer (who must hate me), that hads high hopes and vision. impossible to use to show a portfolio in a streamlined manner.

 

Great for Web Surfing, eMail (forget about special formating and real work communications), receiving advertising, and watching YouTube junk and other video and music (poor).... all else is tedious and non intuitive workarounds.

 

Of course, it will not run MS Silverlight (Google/MS licensing and marketing spats), which is the foundation of Fidelity's  "Active Trader Pro", which will run on a Win OS Chrome browser, but not the the Chromebook's Chrome browser.  So the Chromebook is not even capable of running any worthy WORK program.
