@pmidy - It was actually released in April according to the Drivers page.. When I ran an auto scan on the page today it was one of the drivers listed. My machine now has all available updates/FW/drivers and I see no differnece in the fan or battery loss during sleep. Attached Screenshot of what I saw when I did a scan today

Have an X1 Yoga 3rd Gen. It is almost identical to the X1 Carbon so keep checking the Vantage app (I check it once per day).
As for last night's "sleep" battery drain, it was MUCH better, but still not as good as it should be.
Put computer to "sleep" at 5:07pm with 99% battery and "woke" it this morning at 7:27am with 92%. So I lost 7% over 14.5hrs or .48% per hour. That is a HUGE improvement over the 2-3% per hour I was seeing before. Would only lose 1-2% per 12hrs with my prior MacBook Pro, but still a HUGE improvement.
Ran the sleep report and did not have any HWDrip issue, nor any "RED" colored offenders in the report drawing power all night.
Will check it again tonight to verify that last night was not a fluke.
Thanks to the Lenovo and Intel software engineers for continuing to work on this issue.

I put my laptop into sleep mode last night with 95% battery. Woke up this morning, the laptop was warm and it was down to 48%. Unacceptable battery drain. All the latest drivers are installed. NoHwDrips still showing as the problem.

I have been having the same problems also. Never had these problems with my Mabcook Pro. Lenovo will blame Windows and Windows will blame Lenovo. We close the lid on our laptop before going to be bed only to wake up and find battery dead or close to dead

I am thinking the best solution is the box that this Thinkpad came in. I have give it quite a bit of chances and time but the Costco return policy is closing in and Apple just announced the new MacBook Pro models today. With the X1 I don’t know who is at fault Windows of Lenovo for all these little issues here and there.

Those of you with X1 Carbons should hang in there a few more days if you can. I believe the solution is the Intel Thunderbolt Controller Driver - 10  - V.126.96.36.1990 (for the Yoga). Hopefully, Lenovo will have a new Intel Thunderbolt driver for X1 Carbon holders soon.
This driver update has dramatically changed the way the X1 Yoga runs while plugged in (almost always silent now), and has drastically improved the sleep drain.
Last night (2nd night of testing), I put the computer to sleep at 5:18pm with 100% battery. This morning, I "woke" the computer at 7:20am with 93% battery remaining. 0.5% drain per hour. Still not as good as my old MacBook Pro, but significantly better than the 2-3% per hour I was getting before the most recent Intel Thunderbolt driver update.
Looked at the Sleep report and there were no "red offenders" and the "NoHWDrip" issue is completely gone.
Thanks to the Lenovo and Intel software developers for continuing to work on this. I do still believe that 1-2% drain per night should be the goal, but 7% over 14hrs is pretty good.
Best of luck to the X1 Carbon owners. Perhaps check the Lenovo website for driver updates each morning, apparently the driver updates typically take a few days to a few weeks to show up in the Vantage app for some reason.
