Lenovo X / T series Battery problems (X240, X250, X260, 440s, etc.)

Hi, 

 

Anyone has the same problem that battery dies very quickly ?

We have several hundred Lenovo laptops and suddenly we are facing battery problems.

It seems that some software update, Windows or Levono´s own are running the laptops fan all the time and battery will run max. one hour.

 

We tested this with one clean install of Windows and it worked fine, after installing Lenovo´s latest updates the battery problem started.

 

Any ideas what is causing the problem ?

some basic troubleshooting here but have you tried installing the updates one by one?  i'm assuming you're pulling these through system update.

To debug this, please check task manager to see which process(es) are using excessive CPU.

Task manager is not showing any ordinary behavior, the same problem is in Windows 7 and Windows 10.

In our case we have noticed that Windows Update might be the reason for some laptops, it´s trying to get the updates in a loop but not getting any. Check and reply if you are having the same problem, we are using WSUS for the updates.

Some laptops the problem solved when updating the WiFi driver.
