Battery Drain during Sleep on Helix 20CG (2014)

Hi Guys,

 

I have a Helix that runs down the battery during sleep, i charge it overnight, check a few emails in the morning, close it onto its keyboard and go to work. when i get back at 5pm battery is drained.

 

Power settings are fine and the notebook screen is off (and the red "thinkpad" light is off )

not sure why the power is being drained out during sleep or its also possible the notebook wakes during my absence.

 

Any leads would be appreciated.

Go to an administrative command prompt and run:

powercfg -devicequery wake_armed

Go into Device Manager for each of these entries, under Power Management, uncheck Allow this device to wake the computer. (Unless you need wake for that particular device.)

Ok,  didnt try that.

 

 I Had the 2 keyboards (not sure why) and 2 Mice (Trackpad +Logitech)

 

I did a test with all devices unpluged and unit in its QuickShot cover and I got the same results.

Still, I disabled "Wake on" for everything, just in case... i will keep you posted tomorrow morning when i wake up.

No Go, Laptop still loose power.

 

Its actually on, cause sometimes i hear new email alerts when its supposed to be asleep.

 

The light is even off, this is quite strange.

 

I have a similar problem with a second unit....

* Update

 

I now know that the problem has to due with the Wlan 7265 Card.

When It's disable the notebook loose less than 1%/Hour.

Enabled i'm loosing almost 8-10% an hour!!!
