Battery draining loads when "sleeping" - 20SX001CUK - ThinkPad X13 Yoga Gen 1

2020-10-16, 11:17 AM

Hi,

 

I haven't yet done a proper test of exactly how much battery is draining but last night it was about 70% and this morning I opened it to 18%. Also it was still very warming, suggesting to me it isn't sleeping properly.

 

In general the battery life just seems to be terrible, the percents just tick away....

 

I have run powercfg/energy and identified one thing that is explicitly stating it is stopping sleep:

 

System Availability Requests:System Required Request

The device or driver has made a request to prevent the system from automatically entering sleep.

Requesting Driver InstanceINTELAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0257&SUBSYS_17AA22AD&REV_1000\5&1b49b8ea&0&0001
Requesting Driver DeviceRealtek High Definition Audio(SST)

 

 

 

In device manager I have tried: Uninstalling, Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver via windows update and Disabling the device (results in no audio)

 

If I uninstall, it seems to just pop back up after a restart.

 

Anyone have any idea how to solve this? or why this laptop seems to only be capable of a couple of hours of battery life?

 

 

 

I'm starting to massively regret this very expensive purchase. It was meant to replace my X230 but i'm really not impressed so far....

Hi, I have a similar issue with my ThinkPad 13 Gen 2... and I'm pretty sure it is the result of a feature-clash between Lenovo's "Instant On / Easy Resume" and the "modern sleep" modes of Windows 10, anyway please take a look at my post on this thread: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Lenovo-Easy-Resume/m-p/3880484.   

No fix as yet, but in that post I suggest a workaround which might also work on your laptop?
