Battery drain after shutdown

Product Name: folio 1020
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently bought a Folio 1020. I notice that the battery drains about 1-2% per day if it is not plugged in using the AC adaptor.


I google about this problem and tried the following "fixes":

1) disable "USB charging port" in BIOS

2) disable "Fast Startup" in Windows 10

3) disable "Intel Engine Management Interface" driver (I tried uninstalling it, but it automatically reinstall after reboot)


but the device continues to lose charge after complete shutdown and not plugged in.


Is this normal?

Re: Battery drain after shutdown

the Intel ME is important, so do not uninstall it. 


Try unchecking  BIOS setting 'deep sleep' . This is a new feature with Windows 8 and newer (Windows 10) that allows the system to come ot of off state to check for app updates or other things. That could help


Now, all batteries lose power when in the off state so you will always some loss, regardless of the product. That is a feature of Li-Io batteries
