Yoga 900 13isk2 battery drain while powered off

Q: Yoga 900 13isk2 battery drain while powered off

My yoga 900 battery drains ~15% per day when powered off. Issue looks similar to multiple posts for other Lenovo laptops, for instance:ThinkPad E455 Excessive Battery Drains When Power Off I'm running Windows 10. Fast boot is already disabled and BIOS recently updated. Does anybody have an idea how to get the issue solved for my product?For instance: is there a way to manually change the power setting for USB and AC-button in power off mode?

My new HP Dm3T laptop is great, except that when I turn it off at night, the next day I notice significant battery drain, just from being off overnight.

For example, it was at 100 % charge this past friday night. Then on saturday around 1pm when I turned it on, it had about 91% charge. This was not even a 24 hour time period.

The laptop has windows 7 home premium, and i have heard about some timers that wake up the laptop to scan for viruses and what not.

Does anyone know why my battery would drain like this ?

P.S. I have been using macs for the past few years, and I am re-learning all of my PC knowledge.

A:Battery Drain while powered off ?

Yeah, that happens with any battery, even the car battery. I always disconnect the battery (or take it out) if the car or laptop are not being used for an extended period of time (e.g. more than 2 weeks). Else it will end up dead.

Hey Guys, So I just recently got my hands on a new Y410P laptop and am having issues with the battery. When i first received the laptop I had charged it to 100%, unplugged the laptop from AC, completely shut down the system and let it sit over night. Upon waking up the next day and turning on my laptop, approximately 8 hours after last use, my battery was at 85%. 15% drain over 8 hours. I charged it to full again last night and this morning it was again down 15%. I left it all day and after about 18 hours since it has last been used it is now at 70% charge. The laptop has all the latest drivers installed. I have tried removing Lenovo energy management and re-installing but that didn't work. My USB always on has been turned off through the BIOS settings and still the same thing. I currently have the battery unplugged from the system and will plug it back in and test again in approximately 8 hours to see if I still have a 15% drain with the battery out of the system. I don't mind a little battery drain because i know it is part of electronics, but having a 15% drop in 8 hours seems a little excessive and really just unacceptable. Even on my previous Lenovo laptop I saw maybe 1-2% drop over 8 hours at the max. If you have any ideas on what might be the problem, fire them my way and I will test them out after I see what the results are from my latest test.

A:Battery drain when powered down Y410P

Something definitely eats battery even when completely off. Try hooking up your smartphone with a USB cord while the laptop is shutdown fully and see if it charges. If yes then you found the energy leakage. If not, try to diagnose by removing each parts such as HDD or WiFi adapter to determine which devices eat the battery while completely off.

My P70 has been having serious battery drain issues for the last several months. Many times, but not always, when I completely shut down windows (not sleep or hibernate, but shut down!), the battery completely drains overnight. The bottom of the laptop also seems to get quite hot on the underside near where the Nvidia M3000M GPU is located. Yesterday was the worst so far. Shut down the laptop, took it home to find that the laptop was very hot in my backpack (but it was turned off and no status lights were lit up). Plugged the AC adapter into the wall and the laptop wouldn't turn on at all. Took out and reseated the battery, but still wouldn't turn on. Left it plugged in overnight and the laptop stayed hot by the GPU all night long and the AC adapter was also quite warm, so it was obviously dissipating heat or doing something despite being turned off. Then I took the battery out, took it back to work, plugged the AC adapter into the wall but did not put the battery back in, and voila, it turned on just fine. Popped the battery back in, and it still turns on now. Very weird. All of this is troubling if for no other reason than I am frequently left with a depleted battery and the battery often deep cycles, which will greatly shorten its life. Is there a short on my motherboard somewhere. Is there a bizarre bug in firmware that keeps the GPU or some other component running even when the laptop is shut down? Is anyone else having any sort of similar problems? I... Read more

I'm having problems with my 910 yoga. He's been carrying it for more than two days and it's only 44%. Unlike the other posts, where yoga is connected and does not carry my charges very slowly. Also when I remove the power cable the battery drains very fast.

I am a Yoga 700-14ISK user for 2 years. And I had encounter serveral issues with this laptop before (and the service center helped me to fix them) However, now there is an issue I just have now - my battery is draining fast like 1% lost per 2-3 min for light usage (browsing on Chrome or doing my schoolwork either on Microsoft Office or Google Drive) I suspected it was due to my battery wear level. However, as I monitored it, I realised it keep fluctuating (from 19.64% to 42.02%) until I re-calibrate which gives me 38.51% and then 38.71% after a charge to 60%. Is it possible the battery wear level can cause the quick drain in battery?  Is this battery wear level normal? I would also like to point out that I had the battery changed over a year ago and I normally used my laptop for schoolwork and gaming (occasionally now after realising the issue.) I am also going to have an internship (at least 6 months) from July so I am very worried that my laptop can't last long especially its battery. Hence, should I go to a Lenovo service center and request for a battery replacement? Please give me any possible reasons on why the laptop battery starts to drain fast and its battery wear level sharp increase, and also possible solutions for these issues. I would like to know more about it in order to sustain my laptop at least for a year.

Hi, I have an Yoga 900 that worked fine (mostly). However, now I have an annoying issue regarding the battery.  Going from 100% to about 76% could take about 2 hours, but... from 76% to 6% takes a minute. It doesnt downscale normally, but rather jumps immediately down to 6% and then warns me about low battery...  With this issue, the computer is completely useless without the powercord...so, its a bit useless as a laptop yes. Would really appreciate any help here!! Running Win 10 with the latest updates.

Hi tonijj , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Check if this help article applies to your case and verify both BIOS and audio versions. 
 
Manually allowing it to drain then charge it helps in some case other wise you can try steps discussed here on this discussion.

Hi guys, In February, I received my Yoga 710-14ikb and I was thrilled because of the advertised battery life and low weight. However, I have started noticing that 5 months in, my battery drains 10-15% (in 17 hours) when it's turned off. I have set the "what does the power button do" to shut down and the ''close the lid'' to do nothing. There is no heavy usage of the laptop, no downloading etc.In my previous laptop (ideapad 510), this happened as well and eventually progressed into losing ~50% in 48 hours. They ended up repairing it twice and taking it back in the end and this cost a lot of time.  Does anybody have any solutions for this problem?Kind regards,Maarten

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. Best wishes,Manuel

I bought my Yoga 13 (type 20175) brand new in 2014.  It shipped with Windows 8, 128GB, 4GB, if I recall correctly.  I had a license for W8 Pro that I used and there was a free 8.1 upgrade that I completed not long after purchase. Upgrades over the last (almost) 3 years have been boosting it to 8GB of ram, installing a Samsung SSD 850 EVO (250GB), Windows 10 (Pro), and now a battery. Sometime in 2015, I started noticing that if I didn't use the laptop and left it off for 2 or 3 days, the battery would completely discharge to 0%.  I chalked it up to age, and could still get several hours of moderate use in a day, so it wasn't a priority.  Finally, I bit the bullet and bought a brand new battery and put it in last week. Nothing changed.  I still have the same problem. In retrospect, it may have coincided with the installation of Windows 10.  Below is a further description of the problem and things I have tried.   PROBLEM:When shutting down, the battery loses an average of 2.5% per HOUR. (i.e. after 10 hours, it goes from 100% to 75%)This is consistent whether I use the Windows Start menu, the power button, or a command prompt (shutdown /s /f /t 0) to turn it off.  By the way, putting it in hibernate burns at the same rate. When putting the laptop to sleep, the battery loses only about 0.75% per HOUR (i.e. after 10 hours, it goes from 100% to 92%).  This occurs regardless of how I put it to sleep...

Hi amote,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Battery draiining reports are also visible on other OEM forums as well and most likely related to similar features offered by Windows 10. Such also applies to different model of different macnufacturers as well.
 
Disabling fast start as discussed here would be a good step to try first.
 
Our forums are peer to peer community discussion group but Tech support (although maybe limited to their own scope of support) also utilizes the discussions we have for investigation of issues.

Hi,I recently purchased Thinkpad X1 yoga (1 Gen) machine with 16Gb Ram, 512GB SSD & WQHD IPS (Not even OLED) display with windows 10 pro 64 bit OS.My laptop battery is draining fast and only last for 4 to 5 hours with normal browsing & usage with 60-75% brightness (even reducing it to 50% doesn't give much improvement) and in Power save mode. As per Lenovo it should last for 9 to 11 hours but in reality it is no where near to it. I had also looked at similar issues that has been raised in this forum by other users as well. But I strongly feel that a top brand like Lenovo/Thinkpad doesn't cheat customers by giving false promises for the battery life of  9 to 11 hours without their internal testing, also I feel they would have not be claiming this (9 to 11 hrs) battery life by keeping their screen brightness to dark i.e. less than 50% or 25%. So i thought i could dig deeper to find out the problem. After my initial analysis using powercfg.exe command tool for sleepstudy, the report (i.e. https://ibb.co/hzob7F) shows me some a Ghost application called "Unknown [None]" which comsumes more power and I guess this is the culprit that cases the battery to drain faster. Looks like this Ghost appid takes around 60% of the power compared with all the other appid.  But not sure how to identify this Ghost appid. I have also posted my query in Microsoft forum but yet to get an reply.https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-othe...

I have an XPS 9550 6th Gen running Windows 10 (Just over 1 year, out of warranty).
The issue is when the charge plug is plugged in and hovering over the battery icon it says that battery is charging.  However the battery is not charging but discharging until the laptop switches off.  The only way for the battery to charge again is to deplete the battery until the laptop is unresponsive when the power button is pushed to switch lap top on.  Once there is no residual power in the battery it will start charging again to 100% after which the cycle repeats, discharge.
Things I have tried.
Latest Bios update - no change
Another A/C charger - worked ok for a few days
Replaced battery - no change
Bios settings - reset to default (info related to battery and A/C charge reports all good)
F12 - Dell diagnostics, reports all good
When Battery is disconnected the laptop works normally
The laptop charge socket seems tight and secure
I have searched the internet exhaustively but have not found this same issue reported.  The only feasible way I can use the laptop is to disconnect the battery.
Can anyone suggest anything?
I would also like to disable the battery instead of having to open it up to disconnect, is this possible?
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

Please, someone MUST have ran into this issue like I have! I have a brand new Yoga 900 (13ISK2) with an Intel PTT TPM 2.0 (this meets the requirements for Bitlocker). Now, the "chip" is recognized in BIOS, and is also recognized properly in Windows in the Device Manager. (It shows with the proper driver and everything.) The problem arises when I try to use Bitlocker, or the TPM.msc.  Windows reports that a "Compatible TPM cannot be found", thus Bitlocker will not function the way that I want it to. I've re-installed Windows a few times, and I always get the same error. I've tried alternate drivers, and again, no luck.  I've contacted Lenovo Support, and they tell me that I need to pay for "Software Support" since it isn't a hardware issue. Google is no help. So does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

A hidden partition that has the original factory image?When I opened CMD and Diskpart, I found 2 drives indeed, one of them was X(boot) and the other had 600mbs but was hidden.The steps I assumed are:1- press the"nova" button while computer is off2- choose the 4th option "recovery"3- instead of a lenovo screen I get the blue menu from Microsoft Windows 10 recovery.so how do I access the hidden partition that has the original factory image?No drives are being read and I'm presented with an option to choose a driver for my hardware, I chose the hard disk driver but it couldn't read that driver. P.S.: I did a "reset" windows many times and I'm going crazy over this supposedly simple task.Can anybody please help ?

Appreciate some help I am using the lenovo usb c to hdmi adapter (GX90M44577) on my yoga 900 13isk2. My monitor is a HP Envy 27s which supports 4k.  I've been fiddling all day but cannot get the resolution beyond 2560x1440. I know that the adapter only supports up to 30Hz and i don't mind that. The problem is I cannot even set it at 3840 x 2160 at any frequency! Please help!

Hi guys, i have a yoga 900 13ISK2. i used a program unfamiliar to me, to create a partition on the drive, getting rid of all the other partitions, so i only have 2 partitions.Windowes became unbootable and unrepairable, as all data was removed.When i try and install windows it can't see the hard drive. and says 'we couldn't find any drives. to get a storage driver, click load driver'so here's what i know so far;the bios shows the hard drive as a samsung MZV...... but only when i put it in UEFI mode. if i put it in legacy the bios shows the hard drive as 'none'.I've tried to load windows 10 in both legacy and UEFI modes and and it can't see the hard drive in either at the point where windows asks where to load windows. At this stage, i've tried loading all 8 of the inf files from Intel Serial-IO Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Notebookand the drivers from this file Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Yoga 900-13ISKbut it just scrolls for a while, goes back to the load windows screen and shows nothing even after i click refresh. Any ideas where to go from here, would be gratefully welcomed.p.s i have the bios version 2UCN06WW, which is not the latest, but the new bios is an executable from windows, so i can't install it at this stage.

My card reader stopped working. I downloaded the most current driver (November 2016), but that didn't solve anything. Suggestions?

Is it one particular card or all cards that don't work?  Lok in the device manager (under administrative tools) and see if there are any problrm devices.

Hello. I know that this problem has been dissuced already here.My device is not a plain Yoga 900, but the(Yoga 900-13ISK2.Is there a bios update that will allow me to make sure that my computer stays sleeping while I move with it? From what I read, the problem seems to be that a key in the keyboard is being pressed and that wakes up the machine.  Thanks!    Doron
