Have any of you noticed when the laptop is completely shut down, charged all the way and the ac adapter is plugged in, the fan drones and is on? I'm speaking specifically about the left exhaust vent or the bottom vent left side !

No Go, the BIOS update to version F10, with the USB powered off in the BIOS didn't work.
I almost believed it would as the first 4hrs i noticed no drain, in the next 24hrs test , in less than 24 hrs 100% to 85%, the same severe loss.
I am now trying the Sphinx fix, seem to have worked for couple of people in the other thread. Please refer to the details and steps in the discussion thread below,
Hope this helps.

Getting the same results over here on my end after updating the BIOS to the current version. Cheers, I'll take a look into the alternative solution that you posted. I'll update you on my results. Let me know if you find any other alternatives.
Our options are really dwindling here...

Over 12 hrs and absolutely no drain still at 100%
The Sphinx fix works, so i think it was the bloody SSD driver or related that caused the issue!
I have quickly shut it down again, and will check back tomorrow when it will be more than 24hrs!
Looks promising so far! and confident i will get through beyond 24hrs as others who tried the fix did.
Hope this fixes battery drain while shutdown issue on spectre x360 late 2016 kaby lake machines!

HP Spectre X360 Kaby Lake People!!!!!!!
Great news from me!!!:smileyvery-happy:
It has been over 24hours, and the battery is at full 100%!!!!!! absolutely no drain.
I can confirm now the Sphinx fix from Senchronize works like a charm!!!! Kudos!!!!
I am not sure if the same fix would apply to other spectre models, may be others who have explored can confirm, i am thinking the fix is hardware specific but then i am not expert.
Hope it solves the battery drain issues while powered off for all of you, at least for the late 2016 x360 kaby lake models.
You know what's funny?? I have been in touch with HP support on this for more than 2 weeks now in parallel, HP support has come back to me to test the battery using HP support assistant and send them a snapshot of the result is OK. This is after providing them all details of trials and test as posted here in the forum. I even asked them to look at this forum link. Hopeless primary support! I will point them again here so they can learn a thing or two.
Good luck guys!

Brand new laptop (purchased 3/26/2017 at Best Buy)...same problem. Battery drains from 100% to 90% when the laptop is fully shut down in less than 24 hours. After two days, while fully shut down, battery drains to 80%. What happens in two weeks...I haven't tried yet, but suspect that the battery will be fully depleted. I have no attachments in the 1 USB port or 2 Thunderbolt Ports. I use a Microsoft Blutooth mouse.

well Ibought a new 13-W023DX and the first night it went from 100 percent charge to 92 percent with nothing hooked up.
I called support and he hooked in and went straight to work and installed the Sphinx file. This morning still at 100 percent. Hopefully this has rectified my issue and I have to admit, their support yesterday was great at addressing the issue. I love this laptop, coming from a ASUS UX330UA that had issues.
I would suggest you contact support and inform them they need to do the same to your laptop.
