Hello,

I own a Dell Studio 15 laptop, usually I get about 3 1/2 to 4 hours of battery life on powersaver mode, depending on what I have turned on and stuff. But when i checked my battery a day ago, I only had 1 hour and 45 minutes of battery life at 100%!! I know that battery life drains over time, but this was so sudden! I lost 2 hours of battery life overnight! Could anyone explain what has happened and how I could go about fixing this problem?

Thanks a bunch!

 My G700 has had this issue recognizing its own OEM battery since I got it, and there is a long drawn out way of trying to resolve this, but the core problem I believe is that when the battery is Fully Drained it can't Self Identify as an OEM battery, so the laptop won't charge it.  Without charge, it will never get out of this state. Problem:  Battery not recognized correctly as OEM, so won't chargeFix:  Charge battery at least a little bit Yes, I know it won't charge, so how do you perform fix? Plug into power and take battery in and out 5-10 times, leave battery in and remove and replug power cord in side of laptop 5-10 times.  Then leave for 15 minutes, then boot normally. Battery will now be recognized!  Why because you managed to get just enough juice in there while trying to identify the battery 10x or so, for the battery to be able to successfully identify itself when you did start it up. This is a HACK fix, but way better than uninstalling, reinstalling power software, BIOS software and device drivers a number of times (which does not work all that well, I have found). Hope this helps you, let me know! OHHH, and keep your battery charged at least a little to prevent this from happening, and turn power off when not using.  I am not sure if this is just some faulty batteries or all batteries, let me know if other batteries behave better than mine. Best,Mark Eckdahl

Hi,

I've a problem with my Z930-164 : The battery loose around 8% every 12 hours while it is off.

I've the latest bios (6.80) and the latests drivers. I'm with windows 7 64 bits.

By trying many things, I've founded that it is the option : "Sleep and Charge" in the bios. By default it is on Auto mode (1.5 A), there is a 2.0A mode too. If I turn it off, the battery only loose 1% every 12 hours while it is off.

In default mode, why it does not power the USB while sleeping ONLY if there is a device ? Not to drain the battery !

It is a huge problem no ?

null

A:Satellite Z930 : Battery is drained while off

The enabled Sleep & Charge function affects the battery working time.
Sleep & Charge allows to charge external connected devices (like smartphone) even if the notebook is in sleep mode.

Furthermore enabled ?Wakeup? options (Wake up on LAN, etc..) which are available in BIOS would lead to battery discharging.
Therefore disable these options if you don?t want to discharge the battery.

Hello there,
I have a Dell Inspiron 3542 and for the past few weeks I have found that the battery drains after shutting down the laptop. The following is a step by step explanation of the issue :
1. After charging the laptop to 100 %, I clicked Start > Power > Shut down.
2. After waiting for like 5 minutes and ensuring that the laptop is, like "dead" ( no sounds, vibrations or anything ), I closed the lid and kept it on the table.
3. Next day, switch the laptop on and it does not turn on. The battery light flashes for a second and goes off. I connect the AC adapter and the laptop switches on. It shows 0 % battery.
I have run a full diagnostic check up of the laptop and the results do not display any issues related to memory, hard disk or the battery. Lid sensor also works perfectly.
However, I found something interesting. I checked the Event Viewer and I found the following logs :

The lap top has been working with no issues since purchase, but last week it was being used and the battery was completely drained and it switched off. As it was not needed at that point, it was left until the following morning. When it was plugged in, it woudl not start. So we left it charging and still nothing. When you push the start button the keyboard lights up for a few seconds and then goes off and that is it. I have read through numerous other similiar issues and have tried all of the following with no success: 1. Pushed and held power button for times ranging from 20 seconds to 1 minute2. Tried reset button3. Opened up back and pulled plug out of battery, then tried various combinations of pushing power for extended periods, with no power cable etc, and then plugging back in again So now at a bit of a loss as tried everything I can read on line with people suggest, the only other but I have read is about removing RAM, but not sure where they, I think below the battery. So not sure if I need to completely remove the battery etc, but wanted to see if anyone else had any better / easier ideas before I try that. Thanks for any help and guidance Model number - Lenovo Yoga 2 13, Model name 20344

I have an old Dell Inspiron 2200 laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit, and I recently replaced the battery that originally came with it.

The new battery is good, it lasts about 4 hours on a charge, but Vista seems to be reacting to it very strangely. Immediately after I take it off AC power, Vista will alert me that my battery power has reached 99% and is critically low.

After that it'll run fine for about an hour, then when it hits 75% or so it will put itself into sleep mode automatically as if the battery was dead. After it's asleep, I can turn it right back on and it will run for an additional 3 hours before shutting down again (this time because the battery really is dead).

I've tried full-discharging the battery to calibrate it a couple of times, but it made no difference in the behavior. As far as I can tell the battery is fine otherwise (the percentage and time remaining that Vista tells me seem to be accurate), and the computer has no problems when it is plugged in to AC power.

This strange behavior happens exactly the same way every single time I run the computer on battery. Low Battery warning at 99% and false shutdown around 75%. After that it's fine. Any ideas what could be causing this problem?

A:Computer going to sleep before battery completely drained

Hello Chefgon, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Double check your advanced Power Plan Options (Control Panel) settings under the Battery options for what levels it should warn you at. You can adjust these settings for what it should do when it reaches the level you set.

Hope this helps,

The backlight key and fan still working but the screen is black.I let the laptop there for some hours. Then it was able to turn on normally. I then charged the laptop to 90% and turned it off. This time the problem occurred again. It won't turn on correctly unless the battery is completely drained !!! I contacted Microsoft and they had me reset my laptop, but the problem still occurs!

Hi

When I do a suspend to ram during the night, battery can lost 20%... don't think is really normal.

How much charge do you lost during the night?

Thanks

A:Satellite Z830 - Suspend to RAM -> battery drained

Even when notebook is OFF battery will lose the capacity so it is ?normal?.
How many percent will battery lose is different and not the same on all notebook models.

To be honest if you use notebook on battery power supply it is logic to me that during the night you use hibernation and not stand-by mode. Stand-by mode is for short period of time only.

I have received my new X260 laptop a month ago (also my first Lenovo), I did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro and a bunch of drivers. It has been working well until now. Two days ago, I used it all-day with original adaptor plugged in. At the end of the day, I unplugged it and close the lid to put it to Sleep mode before I left work. The day after, I came to work and found my X260 battery was at 5%. I thought I have mistakenly set the Power Option so I checked and it was set to Sleep when I close the lid. Yesterday, I did the same, put it to Sleep before leaving work, but this time I clicked Start > Power icon > Sleep to make sure it entered Sleep mode and I watched the red LED on the lid blink slowly. Today I came to work and the battery was at 5% again! I am suspecting that X260 woke up at some point during the night. I don't know how, no cables connected. Please guide me if I need to update any driver or check any settings on Windows/BIOS. Thank you.

Dear forum users,
I have a big problem as my Dell Inspiron15 3000 series laptp started to behave strangely since I updated the bios from the version on the dell drivers and support website. 

I upgraded to the V12 version Dell Inspiron 3442,3542,5748 System BIOS Version: A12 ,A12, when originally the laptop came with version A06. 

However, since the upgrade, my laptop battery drains after I have switched the laptop off. Therefore I'm having all kinds of issues starting the laptop in the morning and I am afraind this behaviour will lead to a disfunctioning laptop rather soon.
Downgrading the bios version to version A06 is not possible as the utility exists with the message that Dell doesn't recommend downgrading the BIOS version.
What can I do?

I looked at the Event Viewer and it appears it entered sleep, and then resumed from sleep two seconds later (I'm guessing right after I shut the lid).  How do I stop this? I have the power options to "sleep" I have tried to turn off all the "Allow this device to wake up th computer" - no matter what I try, it seems to not go to sleep. It does *sometimes* but the vast majority, it doesn't if I just shut the lid.  My BIOS is updated.  Is there any lesser known fix?  EDIT: Oh yeah, and sometimes it won't wake up from sleep when pressing power, or opening lid, or pressing fn + 4.

Hello, Welcome! Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Despite the fact that the battery power drained during recovery, I suspect the recovery partition is still there and intact. You just have to restart the recovery process. Here is how: 1. Please, shutdown the computer using the power button2. Power it on.2.1 As soon as you press the power-on button, imeediately start hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap).This should open a HP Startup Menu which may look similar to this one 3. Choose F11 for System Recovery options.The computer should boot from recovery partition to open you various recovery options. Note, that F11 option will only work if the recovery partition is there (not deleted) and intact. From there, you have prenty of options to choose from. Follow the on-screen instructions .

Hi,

I have the following big problem with my Satellite Click Mini L9W-B - this happened already two times.

I suspect that this may be connected to some Windows 8.1 setting. It also may be it is BIOS related.

PROBLEM: if I leave the laptop in a sleep mode (by just closing the lid), then If I do not use it for some time (>10 hours) then after that I could not switch the laptop on - it simply does not respond to any keys including the power on button. It does not matter whether I connect the power or disconnect it, I still can not power on the laptop, also it does not matter whether I try it with or without the keyboard attached. BUT: the battery on back on the screen is warm ,so obviously the laptop has not been switched off completely and something (i.e. windows sleep mode or bios or something else) is preventing me to power it on.

The solution I have so far is to leave the laptop for a very long time disconnected (to drain the battery completely - it will not be warm any more!) and then connect the power and then it will be able to switch on. Alternatively, opening the screen cover and manually disconnecting the battery and then connecting it again also work. After that the laptop can be switched on and works fine.

Obviously it is not very good because to wait very long (several days!) or to open the cover is not really a good option when you need the laptop!

Can you help?

May be it is something to do with some power-saving features of Windows?

Many thanks!

A:Satellite Click Mini L9W-B - could not switch it on until battery is fully drained

There is a quick workaround instead of waiting for the battery to drain...

Hold down power button for around 20-30 seconds. That should hardware turn off the power completely allowing you to turn it on again.

Update the bios to the latest version and apply all windows updates after that, that may solve the sleep bug issue

Turn off Fast Startup. Under Windows 10, your computer does not totally shut down with Fast Startup on. It can actually be running processes when you think it is "shut down". If you leave it off AC power for any length of time, it can drain your battery. With Fast Startup off, your computer will boot slightly slower, but it should not make a big difference.

I have a Dell 7737 laptop and from time to time it develops a firmware glitch where random keys stop working for both BIOS Setup and Operating Systems. After such thing happens neither shutdown (Full shutdown / Fast Boot disabled) nor restart get the keyboard back to a normal state. At this point the only workarround is to disconnect the AC power cord and then either drain the battery or physically remove it.
This laptop's battery cover is not designed for daily removal and it is starting to get loose because of this BIOS bug.
I am running BIOS version A14 but this bug was present since I purchased the laptop with BIOS version A07. Sometimes I cannot even type my password because the random keys that stop working match those it uses.

A:Y-700 15iSK - Keyboard suddenly won't work

Hello Joaquim_Silver
 
Welcome to the Lenovo forum,
 
First thing you can try and do is check that your keyboard drivers are up to date, you can do this by going to the lenovo support page and inputting your serial number in to the big box on the front page and then going to drivers and software and in there you will see keyboard. once installed restart your device to let it take effect. 
 
You can also try preforming a static discharge as this some times can happen if used in a carpeted area. Doing this will discharge static from your unit witch can sometimes stop the keyboard from working. Try steps below (If battery is not removable skip that step) 
 
1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal
 
Please keep us updated on how you get on.

Hello,  I recently bought a replacement battery for my T530, upgrading from the 6-cell to the 9-cell version. While I did not buy it from Lenovo, I bought it on ebay, the seller had very high ratings, and as far as I could tell it is genuine. It worked wonderfully for a few weeks, however yesterday upon boot-up I received the "Battery is not supported by this system and will not charge" error.  I don't understand how it could possibly be a counterfeit battery if it's worked fine up until now. I would really appreciate any ideas! Thanks!

For the past week or so, my laptop has been unexpectedly and without warning dying when getting down to approximately 35-40% battery. Obviously there are no low battery warnings since the battery still has plenty of charge left.  After this happens, the computer refuses to turn back on until the charging cable is plugged in. After the cable has been inserted and the computer restarted, the cable can be removed without issue. Sometimes this process will repeat 2 or 3 times before the system stays stable and continues to run down to normal low battery conditions. I have tried changing power settings in the control panel to alleviate this, but nothing seems to help. The computer is less than a year old. HWMONITOR says that there is a bit of battery degradation, but at 16% capacity loss I don't suspect my computer should be dying mysteriously at just under half power. Has anyone else had a similar issue, or any suggestions on what could be causing it? Is it merely a case of a defective battery? Thanks

My battery seems to charge very slowly when connected to AC and when I unplug I lose power in less than 20 minutes and the diagnostic says battery is in "Fair" condition and only charging at 41.38% of its original full charge capacity.  When I called customer service since I am still under warranty, they just said I could send in the laptop for repair which takes about 7 business days or go to a Best Buy for the GeekSquad to repair.  I went to Best Buy, but the Geek Squad said they would have to send it off for 13 days so none of this was helpful as this is my only laptop and I need it daily so to send it off for 7 business days would be difficult.  Are there any other options for repair that reduce the time significantly?  I can't believe Lenovo doesn't offer overnight shipping to expedite the process

I'm having an issue with the battery on my Y700. I generally work from my dining room table where I have the laptop connected to the charger and the charger plugged into the wall.  It sits getting power all day as I work. Consistetly in the mid-afternoon if I'm around I will discover that my laptop is no longer charging and that the power has run down to single digits.  If I unplug the charger from the laptop and plug it back in occasionally it will detect the charger and start taking a charge again.  Sometimes it will start charging again if I remove it from the wall.  Sometimes it will start taking a charge again if I remove the power cord from the charger. I replaced the charger with one that has a power light on it to see what was happening.  When the laptop gets down to single digits the power light is off.  If I disconnect from the laptop and re-plug it in to the wall the light comes back on.  However when I plug it in to the laptop the light will dim and then turn off. It's almost like the laptop is essentially forcing itself to discharge the battery once a day, which now that I type it sounds like a GREAT thing to preserve battery life, but not knowing where this feature is so I can make changes to it is not helping me be confident in using the laptop for a whole lot. Anyone else found this issue occuring?

I bought this laptop about 4 months ago because of its specifications, good price and I thought Lenovo was a trusted brand. The reason that I went to this forum is because I have a serious problem with the battery. It only runs 4 or 5 minutes without AC power and then the battery is completely empty. When you do a reboot (with the AC adapter plugged in) then it charges for about 10 minutes till it says it fully charged. I didn't know you couldn't remove the battery without opening te complete back cover! I even did a bios update to see if the problem of battery drain were fixed. I'm seriously thinking about sending this crappy product back to the store where I bought it!!

My laptop is 80SV00EHPB and I wonder if there is any possibility to replace optical drive with second battery to enhance work time without AC adapter connected. Thanks in advance.

My computer is a year old now and out of warranty. When I unplug the power cable from the machine it hard shuts down as though the all power is removed. There's no way to get to the battery easily, without taking the whole thing apart. It shows that my computer is pugged in, not charging, but it shows the battery as 93% charged and has been that for a while. But then when I remove the charging cable it hard shuts down like there's no battery. I was wondering if anybody had any insight one where to go from here.
