Hello my fellow ThinkPad friends,
I know that there are already a couple of threads out there concerning high battery drain when the device is completely shut down, but none for the X380 Yoga yet. In some cases (E-Series ThinkPads), a BIOS-Update was released to solve the problem. I would kindly like to ask the Lenovo team to try and figure out whether the same can be accomplished for the X380 Yoga.
When my device is shut down, it usually drains 10-15% a day, which cannot be a regular thing. Of course, I have tried all the usual stuff:
- Windows Quick Start is off
- USB-power when off is off
- Wake-On-LAN or USB-C is off
- BIOS updated to R0SET29W 1.13
If you have any other ideas, feel free to post them. Otherwise, I would really appreciate for a BIOS update that might adress the issue. It is kind of annoying charging your device for the weekend knowing that by the next day, you will already have lost 1 to 2 hours of runtime.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yup, I bought top of the range X380 (almost £2000) and battery is flat in 4 days whilst shut down. No advice or info anywhere (that I can find) Dissapointing :-(

Ok guys, I think I have good news. Yesterday, I received a BIOS update via Lenovo Vantage which flashed my BIOS to the following version:
I then charged my X380 Yoga to 100%, shut it down and unplugged it. It was shut down for about 16 hours, and after rebooting it this morning I found the device still charged at 100%! This has never happened before, as I usually would have found it with 10 to 12 percent less battery after this period of time. Maybe the BIOS update fixed something!
NB that I still have diasbled fast start, wake-on-lan etc. and put the device in flight mode before shutting down. But as this was not helpful in the past, I really assume that it has to be the BIOS update. I will keep you informed on the issue!

Another BIOS update, version 1.16, has been released to the web which includes a fix for a battery drain issue in S5 state if the lid is closed.

Interestingly, in the post above a fix for "battery drain when the lid is closed" is mentioned! Actually, that could explain why, with the older BIOS, I once experienced no drain over night (as I wrote after the 1.14 update): The laptop was on my desk with the lid open.

Fingers crossed eh. But.... just powered up and battery hadn't run down (79%) which is good but I got low battery beeps and it shut down straight away! restarted and now working okay.
Seems to me I may have another battery related problem

About 15 days ago I asked Lenovo for my new yoga lenovo x380 which had this problem and I got my pc back today (29/06/18). They tell me that the battery has been changed .... I went to the BIOS information and I still have the version 1.14 .... Now I've updated it to 1.16 and I'll see what happens ... Very bad from this service, and after all I had the pc without my original box, but a generic one. I told the store where I bought it that I would like to have it back. One of the first recommendations that the seller made me was to keep carefully the original box for the warranty...
