I'm finding that the battery of my X200t is draining in Hibernation - I'm quite sure that's not meant to happen. Any ideas?
Spec: X200t 7448-CTO, Vista Business 64 SP2, OCZ Summit 120GB SSD.

Not sure if anybody else is having this problem, but I'm posting a spec list to see if that helps to narrow things down:
Core 2 Duo SL9600
OCZ Summit 120GB SSD
Intel 5100 (AGN) Wi-Fi
Windows Vista Business x64 SP2
That's about all I can think of (in terms of hardware/software) that would be relevant.

I apologize if I seem to be insulting you here. Maybe the answer is simple for you. Are you talking about sleeping or hibernating? Up until recently mine was draining after I had closed it. I had assumed that closing it caused hibernation, I was wrong. The default setting was set to sleep. I mapped the fn-moon key to 'hibernate' and now use that when I'm shutting it down if I don't want to do a re-boot (which takes freaking forever on this thing).
That solved my problem, I assumed closing the lid made it hibernate like other laptops I've used. That's not it's default setting an you can change that. Now I hibernate quite often since it takes very little time to come back alive and is well worth saving the battery.
I imagine that once I upgrade to an ssd hard drive, hibernation will be very quick.

Has anyone found a solution to the problem?
I have a x200 table 7448CTO with 128MB SSD running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
When I put the tablet into hibernation, the battery also drains quite a bit. After a couple of days, the 4 cell battery is totally drained.
