Windows 10 update- Thinkpad P40 battery drain

2019-08-31, 14:43 PM

Hi! Sorry if this issue was brought to the forum before. I checked but couldn't see it.

After the latest windows 10 update, my thinkpad which used to be pretty good in terms of battery life is acting like a 20 years old laptop. I cannot use it without charging for more than half an hour any more. Some surface users mention similar stuff. There is no statement from Microsoft. Just wondering if it is just me who noticed this, or are there others who experienced the same issue. 



If there are others, how did you fix it? This is really driving me crazy. Thinkpads are usually strong as rock (internally and externally) and very stable. Stability is the reason why I didn't get a Dell XPS. However, it seems like there is no way out when it comes to Microsoft updates.
