Battery Life Hp Spectre x360 13-AW0057NA

HP Recommended

I purchased my Hp Spectre in July and have been having battery issues.    The battery will only last around 4-5 hours.   I do not do very intensive tasks other than web browsing, watching youtube videos and reading email.

 

I keep the brightness down and run at a Power Mode of "Better Battery".     I have checked windows 10 battery settings and which apps are using the battery the most and there does not appear to be an issue.    I also ran the powercfg /energy report and it states the following:

-----

Analysis Results

Errors

CPU Utilisation: Processor utilisation is high
The average processor utilisation during the trace was high. The system will consume less power when the average processor utilisation is very low. Review processor utilisation for individual processes to determine which applications and services contribute the most to total processor utilisation.
Average Utilisation (%) 20.26
Platform Power Management Capabilities: PCI Express Active-State Power Management (ASPM) Disabled
PCI Express Active-State Power Management (ASPM) has been disabled due to a known incompatibility with the hardware in this computer.
---
 
I have tried to look up what this means but cannot find a solution.    
 
Perhaps somebody else has the same issue.    Any help would be appreciated. 
 
Thanks!

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

 

I performed the following tasks.

   1.   Deleted the ACPI drivers and restarted.       This appeared to do nothing regarding the battery.

   2.   I updated the BIOS, I was already on the latest version but applied it again.    This did nothing as it was the same BIOS.

   2.   I performed a battery calibration as per the instructions.     This appears to help slightly with the battery life, although I am still only getting around 5 ½ hours.

 

I do not run the laptop at full brightness so I don't think that is a problem and I have only had it since July 2020.

 

Are there any apps that I can run to determine what is draining the battery or what why it is not lasting as long as it should?

 

Thanks for your help.
