If anyone has time, could they conduct this test on their W520:
Lenovo dont belive I have the problem, but it happens every time, and I even bought a second brand new lenovo battery, and it does the same thing.
It may be something to do with the fingerprint reader. I even tried disabling the greed LED, but didnt help
Someone posted that they had the same problem with an older model, and that disconnecting and immiately reconnecting the battery helped, but it doesnt for me.
Thanks for your help!

I assume the precondition at step 1 is that the battery is also connected to the system, right?
And that between 3 and 4, the battery is still connected to the system, right?

This is not just you! I typically shutdown my w520, undock, bring it home, do not use it at home, put it back in the dock at work, power it up and see that I lost ~6% battery life per day. Usually ~95% remaining if it was overnight and ~90% over a weekend, it was 82% this morning after a 3 day weekend.
USB power is off. This is shut down, not suspended, not hibernating.
